Warren Buffett to Lead Schwarzenegger Financial Team

In an announcement today, Schwarzenegger has wooed Wall Street billionaire Warren Buffett and cast him in the lead of his financial strategy team. From the Reuters article:

The announcement pairs a movie star completely untested in politics with a Wall Street sage who is the world’s second richest man.

“He is truly a giant in the world of finance, and he will be a huge help to me as we work to strengthen California’s economy,” Schwarzenegger said in a statement.

“Warren is helping me bring together a world-class team to assist me in addressing the problems and challenges facing businesses, investors and job creators in California,” he added. “Warren has a common sense approach to business issues and an integrity that is unmatched. That’s the same way I want to approach governing.”

I think Arnold just found a stable election platform.
