Schwarzenegger formally sworn-in as California's new governor


Arnold Schwarzenegger was today sworn-in as governor of California, the most populous state in the United States, and if a country the world's 5th largest economy. He replaces Gray Davis, who was thrown out by the electorate in a 'recall' vote - wish we had that possibility here, sometimes.

Now comes the hard work - following through on his promises and bringing California's runaway deficit under control. Good luck!
