'Hardball College Tour' brings governor to campus
L.A. Cicero
Chris Matthews and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger joined Chris Matthews, the host of MSNBC’s talk show “Hardball,” for a one-hour live broadcast Monday afternoon from Stanford University’s Memorial Auditorium. The program was part of the “Hardball College Tour.” As protesters demonstrated outside the auditorium, Matthews interviewed the governor about his various public-policy stances, as well as his take on the war in Iraq and Monday’s ruling by a San Francisco County Superior Court judge declaring the state’s ban on gay marriage unconstitutional. A few members of the audience also had the opportunity to ask questions of the governor.
