Notice the names not on California's candidate list (A. Schwarzernegger)

snip

WASHINGTON There are many keys to good acting. Understanding the underlying truths of humanity. Stepping outside oneself. Empathy. As an actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger has never reached too deeply into these pools. That's not a criticism of the sudden leader in California's recall/race for governor as much as it is a fact. Playing a killer cyborg places certain limits on an actor in the range department.

But what Arnold has lacked in DeNiro/Olivier-quality performances, he has certainly made up for in quotable one-liners. There are few actors with such a list of catchphrases. And already, less than one week into his run for California's top office, he has tapped into his bag of celebrity memorabilia vigorously. He's ready to say "hasta la vista to Gray Davis," the man whose job he covets. He is going to "terminate" Mr. Davis and "pump up Sacramento."

And, perhaps sensing that this campaign will call for new material, he has reached beyond his own repertoire. Last week Schwarzenegger said he was "a uniter, not a divider," a line made famous by the current occupant of the White House. And in one interview he reached back to the film "Network." The voters are "mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore," he said, sounding uninspired. (An Austrian-tinged monotone apparently doesn't work well with everything.)
