A Problem Like Ah-Nuld

Perhaps there is a case to be made for Orrin Hatch’s amendment to make immigrants eligible for the U.S. presidency. Talking to an astute friend yesterday, this point was made: Arnold is worse for conservatives than other liberal Republicans because he has no higher political ambition (since he can’t). Someone like a Rudy Giuliani was worth the bad stuff because there was always an insurance plan with him: You knew he was ambitious and so he would never poke conservatives in the eye too much. With Arnold Schwarzenegger, there is no such guarantee, since he simply has no national constituency.
