"Barack Obama praises Arnold Schwarzenegger"

Telegraph (UK):
Arnold Schwarzenegger may have once dismissed Democrats as "girly men", but the California governor would still be welcome in Barack Obama's cabinet.

Mr Obama, who is fighting Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination, said the former actor had shown excellent leadership, particularly on the environment.

At the risk of alienating diehard Democrats, Mr Obama said: "What he's doing on climate change in California is very important and significant. There are things I don't agree with him on, but he's taken leadership on a very difficult issue and we haven't seen that kind of leadership in Washington."

The Illinois senator has said before that he would include Republicans in his cabinet in the interests of reaching across the party divide.
