Schwarzenegger joins USA bid for World Cup

Now it's a sure thing. Right?

He's gonna be on the Board of Directors for the USA Bid Committee. He's gonna smile, shake hands and say whatever needs to be said to bring some money to California.

Here are good quotes:
"Soccer is the world's most popular sport and California has been home to some of its most exciting games, and I am proud to be a part of bringing the World Cup back to the United States," said Governor Schwarzenegger. "The millions of fans from around the globe that will travel to the United States to cheer their teams will prove a great benefit for our state, our nation and the world of soccer."

"Governor Schwarzenegger is a passionate and committed leader in all the projects he takes on," said Sunil Gulati, the Chairman of the USA Bid Committee and President of U.S. Soccer. "California is a soccer state in every sense of the word, with participation and avid support at all levels, from its vast youth system to the professional ranks. We look forward to working with Governor Schwarzenegger in our effort to bring the World Cup back to the United States in 2018 or 2022."
Think the Governator will still be in office by then?
