— Tape recordings of some of GOP Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's private conversations in early 2006, made by his staff and obtained by the Los Angeles Times, threaten to undo a lot of the bipartisan image and spirit he has cultivated in his second term.  The recordings quote Schwarzenegger complaining about lawmakers of both parties, discussing "American resentment of illegal immigrants,... his taste for gas-hungry Hummers and... his wife's habit of tinkering with his speeches."
