(CNN) - New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson on Wednesday sharply disputed Bill Clinton's reported claim that Richardson promised to endorse Hillary Clinton's bid for the White House.
- CNN Ticker Producer Alexander Mooney
""If he does become the nominee, he will lose between 40 and 45 states in November.""
Let's just file this away until November.
Governor-Bill Richardson,I think it would be appropriate if you moved away from constantly trying to convince the whole USA-what you did and what you did not tell Bill Clinton with regards to not endorsing Hillary.That is water under the bridge.Concentrate on what is good for New Mexicans.Not everyone can become a President.You voted your concience and has to live with it.The ping pong politics does not help.
Mr. Richardson, the only person you have helped is yourself, and the only person you have hurt is yourself.
Clintons lying again. It never ends...
Richardson made a wise decision by endorsing the right candidate, and refusing to get in the gutter with Clinton and Co. shows maturity on his part. When will the Clintons learn we are tired of these tactics?
trader! Juda! unfaithful! Liar! That a' all I think about Richardson now. He own Clinton and own his Hispanic root for his endorsment.
I agree with the first bloger isn't his fifteen minutes up yet.
Richardson: "I held back. I waited. I felt the campaign got nasty"
I would do the same if I were Richardson. Hillary and her campaign has lost my respect.
Kudos to Bill Richardson for making the choice he felt was best for the country!
Shouldn't he back what people voted for? Clinton won NM and majority of the Latino votes. If he ends up in the ticket, Obama will lose. Being a traitor is worse than anything.
Once again the Clintons are distorting the truth because the truth hurts. Bill's "I heard it five times" is equivalent to Hillary's being under sniper fire as she landed in Bosnia. Those two are in their own little fantasy world where they are the center of attention and the truth goes by the wayside. Time for the country to MOVE ON.
now bill is also a big fool let people see him for who he is
Another lie from the Clintons and as far as I'm concerned if it comes down to "he said – she said", I do not trust the clintons. It's close to tax time – What are the clintons waiting for? tax deadline? produce them already....
I must admit I do believe Richardson in this. It has in the past been a thing with the Clintons to discredit anyone that "turned" their back on them or went against them. His little temper tantrum in California only goes to show their frustration and desperation with being behind in the race. The Clintons are not use to loosing as is obvisous with their continued attempts to blame all that is wrong or going wrong on others.
Yeah He claims he's the Clinton's friend and that he is very loyal to them, but don't friends who are loyal support there friends. This guy is a back stabber and he deserves to be put on the spot for what he did. This is yet again the common betrayal that happens when you find out someone isn't really your friend.
please put on your smart cap on. Richardson can choose anyone he wants to endorse. the only traitor is Hillary for going on even though she already knows she is going to lose. but because of the "politician in her" she wants her name to keep going on....Obama will win in November, but its people like you who will not unite.
I left my comment. Where is it!
Richardson is a little man with a big ego. He endorsed Obama because he felt Hillary was not giving him enough attention - not because she wasn't the best candidate.
Actions speak louder than words - and Hillary is a woman of action. Obama is going to be the democratic version of George Bush. If you place an incompetent person in the presidency, you will get an incompent President . Obama will be the Democratic version of the Comedy of Errors, just like George is the Republican version.
Bill Richardson owed nothing to the Clintons. Yes he worked in Bill's White House, but many who worked in the Clinton White House felt betrayed by the Clinton lies. It sounds like Bill is lying again. Can he prove the 5 meetings other than the Super Bowl?
obama///richardson OR obama //// gore
He endorsed the better, more honest of the 2 candidates. What is te big deal. Bil and Hill are liars.
I thoroughly resent the Clintons' feelings of entitlement...
"It is likely that Obama will be the Democratic Party nominee. If he does become the nominee, he will lose between 40 and 45 states in November. It will be hilarious to watch Richardson and all the other rats desert the ship when that happens."
If he does lose, then guess what? No one hasn't change....
Stop with all the nonsense. Bill Richardson did want he thought was right. It appears only Democratic leave comment on this website. They might not be Democratic. The facts are you can not vote for McCain in November. Rember McCain equal Bush. Vote Hilliary or Obama. Some people are leaving untrue comment just trying start trouble within the Democratic party. please rember you never know who is leaving a comment. CNN please post this
Obama will win this fall! Face the music you Clinton lovers!
Can we as democrats unite? If we dont support whoever the nominee is the republicans will have there way for another four years. You think we in the crapper now wait till the next group of republicans get in there do to us. I suggest go to proper factcheck outlets i wish cnn would do this and do real research on your candidate as a inteligent voter/supporter and if your candidate does not win support the other for the sake of our party. We all know media will not portray the whole truth and this is not a game act like responsible adults and support your party. God Bless
Yes, the Clintons should get over it. They are liars and thieves and no one owes them any anything.
