Schwarzenegger, Bloomberg Talk Compromises and Surprises

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mayors Michael Bloomberg and Antonio Villaraigosa (pictured above with USC Annenberg’s Dean Geoffrey Cowan) convened at Creative Artists Agency’s swank new Beverly Hills HQ Tuesday for a conference on bipartisan politics, and this perhaps scripted meeting of high-wattage minds (and personalities) produced some thought-provoking—and surprising—conversations and announcements.

Hey, Bush:  Is That an O’Doul’s?

OK, so perhaps we were a bit slow on the uptake here, but it appears that ostensibly clean-and-sober President Bush enjoyed a beer with a few colleagues whilst in Europe for the G-8 summit last week, as this BBC clip shows.  Whatever it is, it’s a heady brew—watch as Bush pours a bit too quickly and it froths onto the table.
