SCHWARZENEGGER AIMS HIGH:
In his annual State of the State address on Wednesday night, the governor called on the Democratic-controlled Legislature to enact a fundamental overhaul that would include that most sacred of political cows, the way Congressional and legislative districts are drawn. . . .
Mr. Schwarzenegger, a Republican, noted that of the 153 seats in the California Congressional delegation and Legislature that were on the ballot in November, not one changed party hands.
"What kind of a democracy is that?" he asked in his address.
"The current system is rigged to benefit the interests of those in office and not those who put them there," he said. "We must reform it."
You know, it really is too bad that he's not eligible to run for President.
UPDATE: Here's the text of Arnold's speech.
