    What a sleaze this Richardson. Where was he when his endorsement would have counted among the Latinos during the California and Texas primaries? I guess he finally found his true place next to this Obama guy from Kenya.

    We'll just have to wish Mr. Richardson GOOD LUCK. We'lI hope he'll serve Mr. Obama well. Bickering and giving him a sense of importance will never bring him back to the Clintons. He is gone.

    Enough of the Bush-style cronism displayed by Carvelle and the Clinton henchmen. It is disgusting how Clinton supporters attempted to label him a traitor. Or make fun of his beard?

    Political alliances should be made at one's own free will and personal convinctions.

    Politicians need to EARN everyone's respect and vote. Good for Bill for standing up for what he felt was right.

    So he's calling the president who gave him whatever political life he ever had a liar. This guy makes me sick. His indorsement ended up hurting Obama not helping.

    I don't see Obama as a uniter. He seems to be a great divider especially between democrats and blacks and whites. Trust me no one at work is talking about race. What a sad pathetic joke on so many people like Richardson who thinks he can bring the country together.

    Another day, another fight with the Clintons. Can't wait for 8 years of this eh ?

    Hillary was entitled to this . Just ask her. Ask Bill. She was entitled to just skate to the nomination and then trample her "friend" McCain.

    Too bad the voters didn't get the memo .

    Hillary go pay all your bills you haven't paid and get those taxes ready !!

    According to Hillary Clinton, superdelegates are "free agents, they can vote whom they feel has the best chance of beating the Republicans". Bill Richardson who is an intelligent man, and a free man, made his own judgement call- Barack Obama is the best.

  14. Bill Clinton for Obama

    I think I have finally figured it out!!!

    Bill wants Hillary to lose. He does not want to share the spotlight in history with her and have her prove she is better than him, so he is secretly sabotaging her campaign along the way.

    Bill Clinton for Obama

    Bill Richardson is a traitor. He owes his entire political life to the Clinton's. Everything he has they got for him. He is the biggest traitor in U.S. history...

    Bill Clinton was a liar when he was President and Hillary lied when whe misspoke on Bosnia. The Clintons are known liars. Bill Richardson is a great Governor and an honable man

    The Clintons believe everyone owes them and they owe nothing in return.

    Bill give us a break!

    No matter if Hillary gets the opportunity to serve on the ballot as the Democratic nominee for president or not. Hillary is a winner, has always been a winner and will always be a winner.

    I support Hillary Rodham Clinton 100%

    So, was Bill Richardson a traitor to Bill Clinton when he himself ran for President against Clinton's wife? Would it be disloyal for Richardson's son to run for office against Chelsea?

    Who makes these self-serving "rules" anyway?

    The point is he went against his constituents in NM even though he said he would not vote against the will of the people. Who cares about Bill. It's about his word. This point cannot disputed.

    A win by a small margin is still a win (see Gore v Bush)
