Take for instance Al Franken, Sony Bono and yes even Susan Sarandon. All of them have in one way or another moved into the limelight by either running for political office, or tried to matter by taking controversial stands, even as their pecs sag and the years add up. Well now, you can add Arnold Schwarzenegger to that group.

Yes, The former governor is considering a run for the U.S. Senate in 2018. Of course there could be one good thing that comes out of such a decision. Schwarzenegger is reportedly eyeing the seat, er.. make that position currently held by Democrat Dianne Feinstein who is up for reelection in 2018.
