The Governor was animated during his inaugural webcast- answering questions about everything from why he vetoed the gay marriage bill last year – to his personal schedule. A Sacramento T.V. reporter vetted the questions, out of hundreds that were submitted before and during the live cast:
Moderator: “Let’s move on to a question from Dan, from Yreka, CA. He says 'Governor, first you came into the office as a centrist reformer, then you took a hard right in the special election.' He says this year he thinks you’ve gone to the left and he wants to know where you really stand philosophically."
Governor: " I think I stand exactly where I was when I was elected governor, which is that I’m in the center.”
He also took a stance on one other issue – if he was a color – what would it be. Schwarzenegger said red…because it’s firey. The Governor’s Press Secretary says he plans to do webcasts frequently.
A campaign strategist for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Treasurer Phil Angelides says the Governor should instead hold town hall meetings in an uncontrolled setting.
