Is Arnold Jumping Ship?

Speaking on ABC News' This Week, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said plainly that he would welcome the opportunity to be Barack Obama's energy czar should the Illinois Senator win the presidency.

Arnold, who can read the tea leaves with the best of them, was quick to point out that he "doesn't see this is as a political thing", which means it is 100% a "political thing."

He also said that he plans to travel extensively after his term in office expires, promoting green energy, and he defended Obama against the charge that he is a "flip-flopper." Given that Schwarzenegger himself endorsed McCain, that defense drips with irony.
