And this final note. Arnold Schwarzenegger has played many a role in his lifetime: Muscleman, actor, national exercise promoter, California governor, ex-husband to Maria Shriver.

And now, he's about to add professor of state and global policy at the University of Southern California to his curriculum vitae. That's what happens when you promise $20 million in personal donations and fundraising to create a new think tank for state and global policy. The L.A. Times reports Schwarzenegger's first lecture will commence in December.
