TV ads promote amendment to let Schwarzenegger run for president

The ads will run in California starting Monday, and will urge residents to give Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and other foreign-born citizens the right to run for the nation's highest office. Polls show public support for the amendment is low and constitutional amendments require ratification by 38 states and congressional approval. AP has more.
