Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa spoke publicly for the first time Monday about the breakup of his 20-year marriage, saying he was responsible for the split even as he refused to talk about what caused it. In a somber meeting with reporters at City Hall, Villaraigosa declined to answer questions about whether the break with his wife, Corina, was triggered by another romantic relationship.

As gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari campaigned around Los Angeles on Friday - three days after formally jumping into the race - he faced some hard questions from fellow Republicans. Speaking at a conservative Lincoln Club luncheon at a verdant golf course in Valencia, Kashkari repeatedly answered challenging, if not hostile, queries about his lack of experience in elective office, his liberal social positions and his 2008 vote for Barack Obama. The former U.S. Treasury official and asset fund manager did not always deliver the answers his questioners wanted, as he repeatedly returned to the themes that are the crux of his campaign - jobs and education - and his belief that his message can transcend partisan politics.

He's one of the most recognizable people on the planet, with an accent that has inspired a million imitations, but with a little bit of facial hair, Arnold Schwarzenegger was able to roam around a Venice, Calif., Gold's Gym largely undetected. Disguised as the innocuous Howard Kleiner, a trainer with a penchant for offering heavily-accented fitness advice, Schwarzenegger was filmed roaming around the gym offering the sort of wisdom one would expect from the former governor of California: “Remember, 75% of the body is water.

I hate to sound naive, but I was disappointed in Arnold Schwarzenegger's latest performance -- as the philandering former governor of California, seeking redemption through a new autobiography, who sits for an interview with CBS correspondent Lesley Stahl. In Schwarzenegger's appearance on “60 Minutes” Sunday night, he had an opportunity to offer contrition for his sins.  And, here, I'm only talking about his sins against his long-suffering estranged wife, Maria Shriver.  I'm not even talking about the allegations of Schwarzenegger having groped more than a dozen women over the years who did not want his attention and were humiliated by it. Instead, he offered up tight-lipped, terse, even matter-of-fact responses to questions about his colossal betrayal of his wife.  He admitted he had other affairs in addition to the affair with the family housekeeper with whom he fathered a son around the same time that he fathered his fourth child with Shriver.

Brigitte Nielsen told the world last year, and now we know it to be true: She had an affair with Arnold Schwarzenegger during the filming of the 1985 movie "Red Sonja," at a time when he was already living with Maria Shriver. Schwarzenegger 'fessed up to a "hot affair" with the actress and former model in his new memoir, "Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story," which came out Monday. The 65-year-old wrote that he knew the fling with Nielsen wouldn't last, according to the Associated Press, and that it actually made him realize that he wanted to marry Shriver.

Smoke from the raging wildfires near Los Angeles posed a vivid backdrop for a session revolving around an ambitious Showtime documentary about climate change. Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzeneggar, "Vampire Diaries" star Ian Somerhalder, veteran producer Jerry Weintraub and former "60 Minutes" producer David Gelber promoted "Years of Living Dangerously," a docu-series premiering  April 13, which is Earth Day. The project features a roster of celebrities and journalists traveling the globe to report about the hot-button topic of climate change.

WASHINGTON -- Arnold Schwarzenegger met with a bunch of California Democrats and Republicans on Wednesday while on Capitol Hill to lobby for after-school programs. But it was notable that the one with whom he strode to the podium at a Capitol news conference was Sen. Barbara Boxer. The once strident opponents and ideological firebrands have mellowed over the years. Schwarzenegger's path to the political middle is well-documented. Activists in the state GOP were ready to ex-communicate the movie star who first ran for office as an antitax crusader, but who had raised taxes by the time he exited government in 2010.

WASHINGTON - Arnold Schwarzenegger made an appearance on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, and the Hollywood actor and former California governor was uncharacteristically disciplined. Reporters tried to get Schwarzenegger to go off script, to tear into the rigid partisanship on Capitol Hill, but he wouldn't take the bait. Standing alongside two of the Senate's most liberal Democrats - Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and Barbara Boxer of California - Schwarzenegger demurred when asked his thoughts about Republican lawmakers who have sought to hinder action on climate change, one of his signature issues.

The Obamacare rollout in California has been bumpy, but it's running much more smoothly here than in most of America. And for that, we can thank former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Gov. Jerry Brown deserves kudos, too. But it was Schwarzenegger who leapt in and became the nation's first governor to embrace the federal Affordable Care Act and begin planning to implement the ambitious program. "The Republican governor who preceded us jumped early and we accepted the baton that he tossed," says Diana Dooley, Brown's secretary of the Health and Human Services Agency.

This is the 10th anniversary week of California's first and only recall of a governor. But no one is celebrating. We replaced a career politician, Democrat Gray Davis, with a Hollywood action hero, Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger. Big mistake. It was like calling in an inexperienced repairman who made things worse and cost us a lot. Yes, he championed a couple of sorely needed political reforms - nonpartisan redistricting of congressional and legislative seats and a top-two open primary system.

It may be too soon, a mere decade after the California recall, to assess its lasting legacy. There have been significant changes in the way elections are run in the state, which, if proponents are correct, may eventually produce a more compromising class of lawmakers less beholden to special interests. Far easier is noting all that wasn't accomplished by the upheaval: The budget wasn't balanced or the deficit painlessly whittled away. The interest groups and their seductive cash weren't banished from Sacramento.

Monday is the 10th anniversary of the recall of Gov. Gray Davis and the election of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Was it the great watershed in California government that some predicted at the time? Was it a "people's revolution," something like Proposition 13, that would trigger a broader national uprising against politics as usual? Was it the great reengagement of an electorate that had been alienated by the mess our leaders had made of things? Or was the recall none of these things, just a system reset that hardly changed anything?

The California Republican Party, long given up for dead, is showing surprising signs of life. The last two decades have marked a slow, steady decline for a party that once yielded such national figures as Earl Warren, Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. Its registration rolls have fallen substantially. Worse is the recent record of statewide futility, a nearly unbroken skein of losses save for the 2003 election of Arnold Schwarzenegger under extraordinary circumstances (a snap recall vote)
