Arnoldandlance_2 Arnold Schwarzenegger's story goes like this:

-He was a celebrity actor and bodybuilder with no political experience.

-He championed a popular ballot measure in California to expand after-school programs.

-Rumors circulated that he was interested in running for political office, but the idea seemed implausible.

-He ran for governor, won and was reelected.

Lance Armstrong's story goes like this:

-He was a celebrity cyclist with no political experience.

-He championed a popular ballot measure in Texas to expand cancer research.

-Rumors circulated that he was interested in running for political office.

Sounds implausible to me.
