Schwarzenegger video of the week

On a note related to Sunday’s post about Gov. Schwarzenegger and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on the cover of Time, here’s the governor introducing Bloomberg at the mayor’s PlaNYC speech at the American Museum of Natural History back in April, on Earth Day. The mayor that day unveiled his plan to fight global warming by reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030 and to improve the City’s infrastructure to accommodate 1 million more New Yorkers over the next quarter-century.

“Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship…”

UPDATE @ 5:40 P.M. TUESDAY: D’OH! Bloomberg quits the GOP!!!
