• Arnold Schwarzenegger Hopes to Add Some Lead Weight to Obama's Cabinet

    Barack Obama is off to a pretty sissy start in his cabinet selections. If he isn't appointing girlie men to important positions, he's appointing actual girls. You think a ripped foreign strongman like Vladimir Putin is going to respect that?

    If only there were a way to add a little heft to this cabinet. Nothing too drastic, just some awesome pecs, rock-solid abs and maybe a co-starring role with Sinbad, if that isn't too much to ask.

    Could anyone possibly fit that description?

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke to President-elect Barack Obama this week and would be willing to work for the Democratic administration once his term expires if asked, the Republican governor said in an interview broadcast this morning…

    The governor has deflected rumors that he would leave his job before his term ends in two years to work for Obama, although he has left a bit of wiggle room in recent interviews. He told Fox, "I want to finish my term as governor because there's a lot of different challenges ahead." But he did not flatly reject an early departure.

    It isn't immediately clear what position might suit Schwarzenegger, but the possibilities are vast, including…

    * EPA Administrator (Hummer Division).

    * Ambassador to the Kennedys.

    * Conan the Secretary of Agriculture.

    * Kindergarten Attorney General.

    Of course, if the Governator were to really join the cabinet, he'd have to submit to Obama's now infamous vetting process.

    So hopefully, out of the reported 63 questions, none of them reads: "Have you ever abused steroids, denied that marijuana is a drug, participated in orgies, or groped your female aides, forcing you to apologize via mass media?"

    Because if that's on there, he might not get the gig.
