Former L.A. mayor Richard Riordan sits down with James Nash of the Daily News and explains that he was surprised by Schwarzenegger's jump into the recall race, but not bothered by it.

"I was pleasantly -- and I underline pleasantly -- surprised when he announced that he was going to run."

Riordan advisers have been cited in the Daily News saying that the mayor felt "set up" by Schwarzenegger's feint.
