Arnold Schwarzenegger I Got Governor John Kasich In The Palm of My Hand!

Arnold Schwarzenegger had lunch with his ol' pal, likely Republican presidential candidate John Kasich, and we're told Arnold schooled him about the ins and outs of national politics.

The former Cali Gov and the current Ohio governor chowed down at The Palm in Bev Hills Friday. Our sources say Arnold downloaded Kasich on national politics and how to run a national campaign, even though Arnold's never run one before.

On their way out, they said it was just 2 old friends sharing a meal. But we know it was a lot more.
