The author comments on the political tactics employed by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. He describes the tactics used by Schwarzenegger for his reform initiatives as reminiscent of the actor-turned-politician's "Terminator" movies. The author contends that Schwarzenegger's change from "Terminator" who aimed to put a cap on state spending into a spender advocating new spending programs is what bagged his landslide re-election.
