Politicians are often evasive about whether they're running, and they always like to keep their options open to the last minute. This is a tradition that no doubt dates back to Og running on the pro-fire platform.
And he didn't 'know' he could 'get' to be governor; he thought there was a reasonable chance that the people would elect him. So far, he seems to have played his cards about right. If he can coast through this final week, he should be okay.
Anyway, heck, I understand criticisms of Arnold. I just think that a number of them are unfair. <And I see Arnold as the least of three evils. Only Gary Coleman can save us now>.
EDIT: This, however, may change my mind. McCain has long been my favourite Senator (even before I moved to Arizona); his word and endorsement does carry a bit of weight. With me, anyway. And hey, maybe Arnold can endorse McCain's '08 presidential bid. *can dream*.
