Really, I think this old news ought to help Arnold. And my jaded self means that as a compliment.
As far as I can tell, he isn’t denying any of that. ’bout the only thing Davis/Democrat camp can use is to put a wedge between Arnold and hard core Orange/Riverside County Republican. If anything, this interview made him more human to the Northern California Democrats.
As I mentioned on my blog, there’s nothing in this piece that Schwarzenegger hasn’t mentioned before in his own books. To be sure, in the interview, he’s far more graphic about certain details, which are bound to upset social conservatives who already hold him with skepticism. But most people, I think, will simply take in the contents, consider them unsurprising, then move on.
