Schwarzenegger: Change Constitution So I Can Run For President
Sources tell the New York Post that former California Governor is seriously lobbying for a change to the constitution so that he can move to the White House:
“Schwarzenegger has been talking openly about working on getting the constitutional rules changed so he can run for president in 2016. He is ready to file legal paperwork to challenge the rules.”
Arnold has been hinting about a presidential run for years. In 2010 he was asked by Jay Leno on the 'Tonight Show', if he would make a White House run, if the rules were altered, he replied: "Without any doubt."
In a 2008 "60 Minutes" interview with Scott Pelley, Arnold affirmed his presidential ambitions:
"I think that I am always a person that looks for the next big goal. And I love challenges."
"I always set goals that are so high, that are almost impossible to achieve."
"Because then, you're always hungry for climbing and climbing. Because it's always interesting."
"The climb is always interesting. When you get there you just have to pick another goal."
The Austrian-born bodybuilder-turned-actor-turned-politician-turned-tabloid superstar has been a citizen since 1983.
