Schwarzenegger Has Eye On White House

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER is carefully following former American President RONALD REAGAN's example - in the hope of becoming the next movie-star president.

The TERMINATOR star has ambitiously copied the late leader by becoming Governor of California and taking a moderate stance on social issues to reach out to both Republican and Democratic law-makers.

Political scientist SHERRY BEBITCH JEFFE explains, "Schwarzenegger is using the Reagan playbook. He is like the Reagan of reality rather than the Reagan of legend.

"It was politically advantageous for Schwarzenegger and other Republican politicians to associate themselves with Reagan following his death."

The Austrian-born actor is reportedly hoping that the country's constitution is amended to allow Americans born in other countries to follow his icon's path and run for president.
