Schwarzenegger starts a new think tank.
Less than two years after leaving office, former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, is pumping up his political and academic profile — and will head the Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy at the University of Southern California, a new think tank to advance “post-partisan” politics.
The Republican former governor told The Chronicle that he’ll formally announce the establishment of the partnership Thursday at USC, where his Institute will be housed in the Sol Price School of Public Policy.
Schwarzenegger will chair the Institute’s Board of Advisors, and he has also been appointed the inaugural Governor Downey Professor of State and Global Policy at USC, a post in honor of the first immigrant California governor — who was also a co-founder of the university.
“I always said that after I left office, I would continue to stay involved in certain issues, to be involved in something that has had an affect on people,” Schwarzenegger said Wednesday in an interview with the Chronicle. “This is what it is about: post-partisanship and the regional approach to issues…(that’s) one of the very important things we learned in California.”

3. It contains all of Ahhhnuuuld's deepest political thoughts.
It amazes me that Californians elects actors to be their governors, and then can't understand why they get such shitty governance out of them.
Apologies in advance to those in California that suffered these fools through no fault of their own.

6. Um, does he understand that a think tank isn't a real tank?
Heck, it's not even one of those cool-looking Micro Machine tanks.
