    Bill Richardson is such a dishonest weasel. He promised Bill that he will not endorse Obama, but he did. Bill Clinton was not asking him to endorse Hillary.

    The Clinton's are cronic liers. Bill Clinton probably dreamed five times that B Richardson endorsing his wife. We knew before the sniper story that the Clinton's are complete liers

    Can someone explain why Richardson should be held to voting the way "Latinos" did? We don't say all white superdelegates should be for Hillary and all black superdelegates for Barack.

    Richardson hasn't been offered a post from Obama yet. Gore kept his dignity and he was rewarded with a job offer. Amazing. Maybe Obama is afraid Richardson will turn on him too. Republicans are going to WIN the election.

    Carville was right he is a Judas and file him in that category with John Kerry as well!!!!! I'm pretty sure in 04 the Clinton's were right there for John Kerry on more than one occasion.

    Richardson doesn't owe the Clintons any debt.

    And if the Latinos feel that they are indebted to the Clintons forever so be it – be their slaves.

    I guess Glen Beck was right. Richardson is Judas. He would not be where he is now had it not been for the Clintons, and what a slap in the face he thanked them with. Jerk.

    You illustrate very clearly why I cannot support Hillary. I dislike nasty people and it is unfortunately apparent that you are by no means alone among her supporters.

    Bill Richardson couldn't carry his own state for himself as a candidate being a governor of the state. He got arround 2000 votes in whole state. He needs to think about himself before he endorse someone.

    Give it a rest. Hillary doesn't need him any way. He will probably backstab Obama to .

    Richardson said that I will help you win the eletion. He said that, but did not do it. So Bill Clinton got mad.So the former president got mad because Richardson did not help Bill Clintons wife Hillary Clinton.

    According to polls, Hillary is more popular among voters with less education. Wow how apparent it is in their blogs!!!

    What a shameless schmuck! He stabbed you right in the back but still get praise from certain people. What a world where common sense is substituted by greed, lies, evil, where people chase benefit, no matter what, to justify anything.

    Bill Richardson, great example you have set! Take a look at your soul to see how ugly it is, and you'll know what a backstabber can get soon!

    Traitor is a bad word especially when you want the super delegates to vote independently. Some thing is really amissed with the Clintons and their machines.

    Bill Clinton has had his wishful thinking five times in a row. I thought he was very smart.
