BOSTON (CBS) — He’s not running for anything right now, but can Arnold Schwarzenegger’s political career survive his admission that he fathered an illegitimate child with his family housekeeper?

A local communications expert says yes, he can, although not every poll who cheats can do the same. (Hello, John Edwards!)

    OHH!!! TOUCHE’, Jon!!! Pulling out the Edwards Card!!! I love it!!! Arnold has already been a governor. I’m guessing he’s all through with politics. The shame he brought on the darling of the Kennedy Clan (after Jackie, of course) will haunt him from here on out.

      It should. He is a great disappointment. And I believe that you are either honorable or you are not. If you are not, then get a private sector job. We have enough hacks, philanderers etc in our political system as it stands today.

      1. BostonIrish says:

        I agree, Cynthia. We’ve got plenty of immoral nutjobs on the public payroll as it is. Here’s hoping that the voters see Arnold as a wrong message to send if he tries to run for anything in the future.

    Cynthia you are right that he is a huge disappointment. I think he is on the downslope of his political career anyway so whether it hurts may be a mute point. Americans have short term memories. Newt is a perfect example.

        correct – thanks

  3. Arnold is Disgusting says:

    Jon, I think your communications “expert” needs a new job. Just because Ah-nuld was known to be randy doesn’t get him a pass in this affair. This woman had daily interaction with his wife and children. It is the ultimate betrayal and the stunning lack of respect for his family has women, especially, LIVID. Public opinion is overwhelmingly anti-Ah-nuld. He’s Terminated.

    Politicians are either corrupt, unfaithfull,incompetent or all three.

    Because he is a republican he is through. Had he been a democrat, this would only enhance his future.

  6. Darlene says:

    He is a disgusting creep, plain and simple. Will he survive…sure, all the “beautiful” people seem to slither their way back to the top.

    The birth dates of these two children really should say it all.
