Note the protestor being pushed by a cop and the loud booing of Arnold, whose popularity, like that of Dubya’s, is plummenting. The reporter mentions that Schwarzenegger, who ran on a platform of no special interests, has now raised more money than the previous governor Gray Davis, who he criticized for doing just that.
