Californian Governor-elect Arnold Schwarzenegger visited the White House yesterday (30OCT03), delighting several politicians who demanded photographs with the TERMINATOR star.

Schwarzenegger visited the American capital, Washington DC, to solicit aid for the West Coast state, currently ravaged by wildfires.

After meeting with Vice President DICK CHENEY Arnie spoke to waiting reporters, saying, "We talked about expediting the funds for victims and their homes, the homes burned.

"We also talked about homeland security. We had a very positive, very good meeting."
