I met him in 1980. He told me his dream job was to be president of the United States of America. He knew then it was impossible with the constitutional challenge of those born outside of the USA being ineligible for the job. Still, he came close enough, don't ya think. Married a Kennedy. Became Governor of one of the biggest states. Not bad for a stuttering young Austrian who took up weightlifting to overcome that stutter.
Not unlike our previous Liberal leader, Stephane Dion, Arnie was waaaay ahead of the times when it came to the environment. And he took on the big three to prove it. Trust me, the big three didn't like that very much. Whether or not his legacy will be greatness or failure remains to be seen. I do know however that The Governator lived his dream out loud.
