FROM Phil Angelides
Angelides' Efforts to Tie Schwarzenegger to Bush 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?
Can Angelides Terminate Schwarzenegger's Political Career? State Treasurer Phil Angelides defeated Controller Steve Westly to get the Democratic nomination for Governor. Now, some of Westly’s supporters say the Angelides campaign is dragging down the rest of the party’s ticket. Democrats in the legislature have made deals with the Governor, depriving Angelides of some potent issues. At last weekend's party convention, Governor Schwarzenegger told Republicans that his Democratic opponent wants to, "increase the car tax, the sales tax, the property tax, the farm equipment tax, the income tax, and the alcohol tax." Angelides discusses the support of his party, which taxes he really wants to raise and why he'd be a better governor than Arnold Schwarzenegger .

León Krauze guest hosts.
