    I agree with you, Bill Richarson made the right decision. The world do not belong to Clinton and Co. The most important thing for democrtate is to be back in the white house and superdelegate should support the best candidate for that.

    Hispanics are loyal. Richardson failed that test when he joined Obama. Sleep well and enjoy the short ride. It will be over in November and so will your career in NM. You are no more an Hispanic than my Irish wife. If the Obama people think that this traiter will bring him the Hispanic vote, they are sadly mistaken

    The Clintons should take it like it is, there time is up. Bill was a good president, but a vote for Hillary is not a vote for Bill back in the White House the way you Clinton supporters would like it to be!!!!

    New Mexico Bill, you should know the Clinton's live in their own fantasy world. Facts and truth have no bearing.

    Thanks Gov. I'm with you 100%. The Clintons are the BETRAYERS to the Democratic party period. And here are the results. The Super Ds are not stupid.

    Thank you Sen. Richardson this is the change we are looking for. Honesty and integrity with the nerve to separate themselves from the you scratch my back I’ll scratch yours politics. Public officials need to start to listen to their constituencies instead of lobbyists and party loyalty.

    Poor Richardson, a man gives you a cabinet position and you are forever doomed to kiss his family's arse.

    We have a freedom of choice in America. The Clintons entitlement era has now turned oppressive. They need to get over themselves.

    Governor Richardson has served this Country with honor. He voted his conscience instead of using his vote for 'back-scratching'. I have never in all the elections I've followed seen anything as nasty as Bill and Hillary, they sound like trash.

    Does anyone really BELIEVE Richardson? He's wanting that VP slot, and I bet Obama promised it to him, after all, Richardson DID say Obama called him EVERY DAY!

    Sorry Richardson, I lost all respect for you.

    Shame on you Bill Richardson. Don't expect Obama would ask you to be in his partner. Obama can't get any more votes because of your endorsement.
    Go Hillary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We all know how well the Clinton's can and do lie or exagerate... Just remember her Bosnia tale of sniper fire.. Point made..

    Obama 08..

    That is why I have to go with Obama. Bill Clinton once again made a fool out of himself and he is taking Hillary with him. Even though Hillary resume will bring her own self down, Bill is not helping. Richardson did the right thing. He went with change instead of same old Washington. Good for you Gov.

    Obama 08!

    To owe someone something in politics in a way of a vote is not what
    we need in this country. To make choices with ones own mind as to whats the best for America is the way to make your vote know.
    Down with the Cronies. Up with common sense.
