'This Week' Transcript: Arnold Schwarzenegger

SCHWARZENEGGER: I have no idea. You know, I'm not thinking now about what I'm going to do, because remember one thing: As soon as I stepped into this political arena, when I became governor, it was not about "me." It was about "we." We turned that "me" upside-down. It was about "we."

I mean, it's all about California. It's all about the people. I have been very successful in creating some of the reforms that we needed. If it is worker's comp reform, if it is rebuilding California and their infrastructure, if it is the open primary, if it is the redistricting that we won just last November, I'm a reformist. I want to go in there and reform and fix what is broken in California. And I will be relentless with that, and I never, ever give up.

STEPHANOPOULOS: We're out of time. What's your Oscar pick tonight?

SCHWARZENEGGER: I really don't know. I mean, I think that "The Reader" to me was one of the best movies, you know, one of the best movies that I've ever seen. I think that movie has a great shot. And, of course, "The Wrestler," my buddy, you know...


SCHWARZENEGGER: ... Mickey Rourke is a terrific actor. I wish that he will be successful and do as well tonight. So there are some really good movies...


STEPHANOPOULOS: And we asked all of our viewers for their favorite political movie. Yours?

SCHWARZENEGGER: I think "The Reader."

STEPHANOPOULOS: "The Reader." Oh, political movies.

SCHWARZENEGGER: You mean all-time?


SCHWARZENEGGER: Oh, political movie. "The Candidate," maybe, I think, is -- is one of those great movies.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Governor Schwarzenegger, thanks very much.

SCHWARZENEGGER: Thank you very much. Thank you.

STEPHANOPOULOS: So "The Candidate" from Arnold Schwarzenegger. All of you picked "All the President's Men."
