Schwarzenegger Argues for White House Run
Advertisements [?]
WASHINGTON - Arnold Schwarzenegger (news - web sites), making his Sunday talk show debut as governor, said that he and other foreign-born citizens should be eligible to run for the White House and that President Bush (news - web sites) can carry California in November if he does more to help the state.


The Austrian-born former bodybuilder, in the capital for his first meeting with fellow governors, said he has not thought about running for president in the future. The Constitution says only natural-born citizens of the United States are eligible for the country's highest office.


The Republican governor said anyone who has been in America more than 20 years as he has should "absolutely" be able to seek the presidency. A constitutional amendment proposed by Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, would make that possible.
