Might Obama Choose Schwarzenegger To Be Energy Czar?

Rumors are swirling that President-elect Barack Obama may consider California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger for the post of energy czar in the upcoming administration. The two haven’t had the greatest relationship — with Schwarzenegger recently stumping for McCain and saying that Obama’s tax plans were “Soviet spread-the-wealth policies”. But perhaps such a move would not come as a complete surprise, especially with Obama being a fan of President Lincoln’s idea to surround himself with people of opposing views. From the UK Guardian,

“The speculation resurfaced this week in the Wall Street Journal in a piece by Keith Johnson, lead writer for the paper’s environment blog, who cited the California governor’s impressive record on green policy, from support for renewable energy to running one of his Hummers on biofuel.”

“Obama and Schwarzenegger also oppose increased offshore drilling and they share targets on reducing emissions, an area where California has led despite opposition from the Bush administration. Back in May, Schwarzenegger even issued a press release praising Obama for introducing a national version of California’s low carbon fuel standard.”

Of course, we all know how inconsistent Schwarzenegger has been in supporting green policies, but not backing them up personally. The private jet flights several times a week, the inefficient cars, etc. But with California making serious inroads towards a more sustainable energy infrastructure, perhaps someone like Schwarzenegger is just what the country needs. If so, it would continue the impressive rise in political power for the former actor.
