Arnold acknowledges some of the help he got in his election:
He also thanked the news media for their role in his quest for the statehouse.
"Please do me a favor: Stay with me the next three years, OK? Because you are absolutely essential for me to get my message out there," he said. "I really appreciate your being part of my campaign."
Arnold then went on to announce that he would solve California's future energy problems by tapping the energy produced by the spinning of Edward R. Murrow's body.
