Today on Holden’s Obsession with the Gaggle

From Holden:

Is Ahnold running away from the preznit?

Q Scott, Arnold Schwarzenegger, yesterday, had a radio interview in which he was critical of the President’s debate performance, as well as Senator Kerry’s. Is Schwarzenegger helping you, or is this helpful?

MR. McCLELLAN: I haven’t seen his interview, so it’s hard for me to comment on something I haven’t seen or heard. Obviously, the President appreciates his strong support for his reelection. And Governor Schwarzenegger outlined some of the clear differences in the race during the convention. And he is a strong supporter of the agenda that the President has outlined, and we appreciate that support.

Q Why isn’t the Governor out campaigning for the President?

MR. McCLELLAN: He said he would do what he could to help, and we appreciate — he gave a very strong speech at the Republican Convention, and we appreciate that, and we look forward to his continued help as we get closer to election day.
