(MSNBC) – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger would love to run for president — if he could.
California’s actor-turned-governor was born in Austria and the U.S. Constitution prevents foreign-born citizens from holding the nation’s top job.
Jay Leno asked Schwarzenegger on “The Tonight Show” Thursday if he would make a White House run if the law was changed.

But that’s not likely in the foreseeable future. Any amendment to the Constitution must be approved by two-thirds majorities in the House and Senate, and then be ratified by three-fourths of state legislatures.
Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear says the governor doesn’t think that will happen.

Schwarzenegger, a Republican, made the announcement this afternoon. The veto will mark the first time in modern history that a California governor has rejected a state spending plan. The Democrat-controlled Legislature has said it is prepared to override a veto. Continue reading
