California's just-exited Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's father-in-law, Robert Sargent Shriver, has died, the Sacramento Bee reports. Shriver, father to Maria, had a long political career and is part of the Kennedy family, through his marriage to Eunice Kennedy. He was "the driving force behind the creation of the Peace Corps, and as the Democratic Party's replacement candidate for U.S. vice president [...] during the 1972 U.S. presidential election." Shriver was 95.
