Arnold Schwarzenegger was among the invited guests Monday as Jesse Ventura, a one-time professional wrestler known as “The Body,” was sworn in as governor of Minnesota. (Ventura had roles in Schwarzenegger’s films “Predator” and “The Running Man.”) The 47-year-old Ventura took the brief oath of office in the rotunda of the state capitol as choirs, bands, public officials and guests stood nearby. It remains to be seen how Ventura does as a diplomat. As he says of Schwarzenegger in the upcoming issue of USA Weekend: “Arnold’s problem is that I can do something he can’t: be President. He wasn’t born here. Arnold doesn’t like to be told he can’t do something.”
