Making News Retired Navy Admiral Likely New Chief of LAUSD 5 MIN, 5 SEC

The state legislature gave Mayor Villaraigosa a role in choosing LA's Superintendent of Schools. But the new law is being challenged, and Villraigosa's in China, so the elected school board is going ahead with the selection process on its own.  Today's Daily News reports that the leading candidate is a retired Navy admiral with no experience in public education.

Main Topic Angelides' Efforts to Tie Schwarzenegger to Bush 11 MIN, 41 SEC

TV spots paid for by Democrat Phil Angelides show Governor Schwarzenegger morphing into President Bush.  Last night on Jay Leno's Tonight Show, the Governor said "To link me to George Bush is like linking me to an Oscar... I mean, that's ridiculous." Does Angelides deserve equal time? So far, NBC just says he’s not scheduled.  Is the Governor disloyal to the GOP?
