Miley Cyrus has found a life after music. She wants boyfriend Patrick Schwarzenegger to follow dad Arnold into politics, so she can have the clout to advocate causes near-and-dear to her heart.

Miley has become increasingly vocal on social issues and can see herself in an official position where she can effect change.

She thinks Patrick has a bright political future in California where his father was a popular governor for two terms, according to a source close to the couple.

“They’ve definitely have talked about it,” says our source. “She knows Arnold wants it.”

Indeed, the “Terminator” actor believes his son could easily win a seat in Congress or the California State Legislature. From there the sky is the limit.

Arnold ran as a Republican and was first elected on Oct. 2003 in a special recall election to replace then-Governor Gray Davis. He ran on his own in 2006 and was re-elected by a wide margin. His term ended in 2011.

Patrick’s mom is Maria Shriver, the daughter of Sergeant Shriver and Eunice Kennedy, a sister of President John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy and Sen. Teddy Kennedy.

Shriver was a Kennedy political operative who served in JFK’s administration and helped found the Peach Corps.

Arnold firmly believes he could have been elected President of the United States if he had been born in the United States. But the U.S. Constitution prohibits foreign-born residents from running. Arnold was born in Austria.

Patrick, however, is a U.S. citizen. He is also a scion of the storied Kennedy family, which still has extensive political connections in Washington and around the country.

The 21-year-old is drop-dead good looking and possesses that magical Kennedy charisma. His father believes Patrick could ultimately realize his dream of becoming president.

Miley is all for it. She’s outgoing, comfortable in public and would make an excellent political wife, our source says.

As she’s become more established in her career, she’s has discovered a keen interest in advocating such issues as women’s reproductive rights, legalization of marijuana and equal pay for women, according to friends.

There’s only one problem; Patrick is not really politically motivated. He’d rather pursue a career in show business and is currently working as a part-time model.

But Miley doesn’t like to take no for an answer and neither does Arnold.
