As the unstoppable cyborg in "The Terminator," Arnold Schwarzenegger made "I'll be back" part of the national lexicon. Nearly two years after leaving California's highest elected office, he's making good on the promise in a big way.
The former Republican governor, who just turned 65, told The Chronicle that he will head up the Schwarzenegger Institute for Public Policy at University of Southern California, a think tank designed to explore "post-partisan" politics and global challenges.
Among the luminaries working alongside him are former Mexican President Vicente Fox, Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann, former U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros and Nobel Prize-winning climate change scientist Rajendra Kumar Pachauri.
Schwarzenegger, who donated $20 million to the project, said he's convinced that his academic venture can bring together people from across the political spectrum to solve key problems such as climate change, crumbling infrastructure and health care reform. He keeps in mind, he says, his philosophy when it comes to such landmark efforts: "Never give up. Just try and push - and push and push."

I just hope he doesn’t hurt himself there....
Lord love a duck! A think tank? For “post-partisan” politics and “climate change”? Like, awesome oxymoron, dude.
>> to solve key problems such as climate change
Some folks in California are not aware the climate outside of that state actually changes.
Headline should read “Schwarzenegger Buys Himself a Think Tank.”
He probably thought it was some sort of sauna...
yeah that’s some intellectual major decision making heavy weights right there now....
A little more seriously, this is probabaly a good move on his part. I suspect that from here on out every trip he takes and every restaurant meal he buys will be tax deductable.
Funniest headline in a long, long time...
All the world is a stage.
next on the board of that intellectual Schwarzenegger Think Tank Kerri Strug and Bela Karolyi for inspiration.. You can do it..
Thanks for the laugh.
HAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHHAHAHHA!!! THINK TANK!!!! HAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHA!!
... he’s convinced that his academic venture can bring together people from across the political spectrum to solve key problems such as climate change, crumbling infrastructure and health care reform.
How does he expect to do that when he and his whole gathering are leftist idiots that expect they, and only they, can control the climate changes, etc.?
