Arnold Schwarzenegger's pals Tom Arnold and Rob Lowe were among the dignitaries, politicians and celebrities who celebrated the start of the former actor's second term as California Governor in Sacramento yesterday (05JAN07).
Guitarist Jose Feliciano and stage musical icon JENNIFER HOLLIDAY - the star of the original DREAMGIRLS - performed anthems and tributes to the Terminator at his inaugural address, while Donna Summer and Paul Anka were among the celebrities on show at a lavish dinner last night (05JAN07).
The festivities marked Schwarzenegger's first public appearances since fracturing his femur in a skiing accident in Aspen, Colorado just before Christmas (23DEC06).
The former Hollywood action man used crutches to get around yesterday. He has been told he'll need to stay on them for at least the first two months of his new term.
Schwarzenegger was initially sworn in as Governor in November, 2003. He won a second term last year (06).
