    As a New Mexican I do not trust Bill Richardson. The man is a blatant opportunist. He will do anything for recognition and to acquire the next post. He is indeed a Judas of the worst kind.

    If Obama is the Democratic nominee, he will defeat Mccain. Now, polls shows that he does better than Hillary in a hypothecal matchup
    Go Obama

    Yes, but has Richardson had to dodge sniper fire like Hillary did?

    But seriously, the real victim in this affair is Bill Clinton's legacy, such as it is.

    When he was President, Bill Clinton lied under oath, so why should mis-speaking on the campaign trail be a problem for him?

    The Clintons have a history of LYING.
    Bill Richardson is doing what he thinks is the right thing to do.

    Thank you Governor Richardson!

    Richardson did what was best for the Country...not the Clintons.

    That's what elected officials are SUPPOSED to DO!

    NOT to act on FAVORS, but out of integrity..

    Bill Richardson is a self absorbed non entity.

    We don't care about his thoughts or who he supports or doesn't support. He looks greasy and should go back to the Miami Sound Machine

    Sorry, CNN please delete my other comment.

    I meant that RICHARDSON is a traitor to his own people; he betrayed his own race.

    Don't matter whether you promised the Clintons or not – they gave a lot to you and you should feel like returning something to them. Oh well, we know now you're out taking care of #1. Just remember what the good book says "ill gotten gain reaps no lasting reward".

    Hillary becomes the Nations leader.

    Richardson was left with a lot of campaign debt, he wanted his state to pay it, they said no, Obama is flush with money, he;s contributing to superdelegates campaigns, do you think Richardson's debt may mysteriously disappear? I doubt this will be comment will be seen, but it should be.

    The Clintons are mad because they couldn't control someone.
    Bill Richardson is a real man....with real morals.
    Remember, he actually KNOWS the Clintons.
    Hello???
    He's to be commended for his strength of character.

    I agree with many others – why has Obama labeled himself "black"? He's 1/2 white and 1/2 black. Why does the news media refer to him as "black"?
