California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is on his way out of office with dismal approval ratings and a proposition to dismantle much of his legacy on the ballot—but he's going out fighting. In an interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer, the once-and-future Terminator slammed the "wimps" in Congress for not standing up to the oil companies and argued that his state's energy policy, which Proposition 23 aims to roll back, should be a model for the country.

Schwarzenegger, however, has no plans to seek office in DC and take the fight to the wimps. He plans to write his memoirs after leaving office and may return to the movies. "If James Cameron or Ivan Reitman or someone that I trust come with a great script, where I look at things and say, 'That's me. I can play that,' it could be something like that," he said. Schwarzenegger has already teamed up with Terminator director Cameron again to make an ad urging voters to defeat Proposition 23. (More Arnold Schwarzenegger stories.)
