Main Topic Schwarzenegger and Limbaugh, Together Again? 18 MIN, 30 SEC

Governor Schwarzenegger got 90% of the Republican vote last year in California and Rush Limbaugh has 10 million listeners nationwide. Lately, they've been calling each other names. After Limbaugh said Schwarzenegger had betrayed conservative principles, the Governor called the radio host "irrelevant." Limbaugh then called Schwarzenegger a "sell-out." Today, they went head to head on Limbaugh's program. We find out what happened and whether it's "relevant" for politics in California.
