Sen. Schwarzenegger?

He can't be elected president, but he could run against Barbara Boxer in 2010.

The Constitution prevents Arnold Schwarzenegger from becoming president, but the Sacramento Bee's Dan Walters says that the California governor's easier-than-expected reelection has people around him thinking about a bid for the U.S. Senate: "If Schwarzenegger still has the political bug four years hence, and his own popularity remains relatively high, he'll almost certainly weigh a challenge to [Sen. Barbara] Boxer. But it could be much easier for him to run for a vacant Senate seat in 2012, when [Sen. Dianne] Feinstein will be 79 years old and perhaps contemplating retirement."
