Coming up this evening at 9, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes Arnold Schwarzenegger for an honest and revealing primetime interview.
With the election's first presidential debate scheduled for Wednesday evening, the former governor of California reveals what he considers to be specific keys to success:
"To be as honest as possible. And it’s not to drop a lot of numbers, and tax, and statistics. Because people don’t remember that," says the 65-year-old actor and author. "You've got to be able to look right into the screen. And to communicate with the people. And to grab the people, and draw them in to your world. And to your concern so they understand what needs to be done in the future."
A veteran of two debates during his political run through "The Golden State," Schwarzenegger calls for solutions to specific problems, as opposed to the candidates merely recounting the challenges of today's America:
"What I want to hear in the debate is not just 'here’s what you need to do.' Because that's a no brainer that we need to fix our infrastructure. And that we got to get a real healthcare program going. And everyone be on the same page. And that you got to go and stimulate the economy to get our GDP up again to 4% or 5% increase every year," the youngest ever Mr. Olympia winner tells Piers Morgan.
"I want to know exactly how. How are they going to bring both of the parties together? Sit down and really have a serious discussion. And compromise rather than getting stuck in your ideological corners. That is really the most important thing. Because in Washington right now nothing is happening."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in this evening at 9 as the star of such films as "Total Recall" and "The Terminator" opens up like never before.
