Author vs Narrator

Arnold Schwarzenegger held a conciliatory news conference (and his now disembodied ass) where he expressed regret for blowing at least $40 million in public money, hundreds of millions in private money, months of everyone’s time, all for a special election that has instantly converted him into a gristle-bound lame duck.

“If I were to do another Terminator movie, I would have the Terminator travel back in time to tell Arnold not to have a special election.”

The confusing thing: who exactly is the “I” in that sentence?

More importantly: who is the “governor”?
