    Just because a government official endorses a candidate does not mean that it is for the best interest of the people. It can also be political move to keep their jobs in the future or receive favors from the candidates.

    I will say one thing more that I have been wondering about – I thought HRC was supposed to be disclosing her tax statements – no evidence yet – why is no one asking about that?

    Bill Clinton is a sheer liar....Americans 're tired of him and his double face wife. I am optimistic the world are watching this family with disguise and dismay.

    Bill Richardson made the right choice-he does'nt own Clintons anything.; he serves his country and serves it good and honorable...

    Bill Richardson is a thinking man. He thought, weighed the measure and decided to endorse Obama. He gave his reasoning thought. Obviously, the Clintons are really upset. Hmmmm. I wonder why?
    Bill Richardson has done a lot for NM and, yeah, he is a politician but he knows about people and their needs..all kinds of colors of people.

  7. Good for Richardson

    He is showing us what the Clintons are really about. They are into the "you scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours" Politics. If Hillary wins this what we can expect, a President who will make deals behind close doors instead of with the best interest of the people in mind.

  8. Anyone but Obamination

    Other post closed....
    If Obama wore a pin he would be a hypocrite. He attended an un-american church for 20 years. He is not patriotic at all, he just wants to be president. Says, this is the greatest nation on earth, lets change it. LMAO

    Richardson is as self serving as Obama. His endorsement won't matter, because if Obama gets the nomination, McCain will be the next president.

  11. T. Colbertson,

    . . . .Bill Clinton is a bully. No wonder John Edwards has not endorsed
    Senator Obama yet. He doesn't want his doorbell to ring at 3am, peek
    out of the blinds, and see Bill standing on his porch with James Carville.

    Bill no one cares anymore about you or your endorsement, Obama will never win in a general election. If he thinks people are stupid that he went to the same church for 20 years and had Rev Wright in his campaing and never heard this anti american remarks.

    Wow "red faced"...? Why such anger. These Clintons just expected every one to fall in line regardless of whether or not the line leads them of a cliff... and we thought Bush was all about cronies... ask yourselves why are so many people afraid to think for them selves.

    Bill Richardson–YOU SUCK EGGS!!!!! James Carville was right on the money when he called you a Judas. I'm glad you endorsed Obama so everyone could see what kind of WEASEL you are, and to illustrate that he (Barak Obama) is of the same calipar standing next to you with egg on his face!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't believe a word of what Richardson has said. He is a real Traitor and belongs with the OBAMA team. NO Credibility and NO JUDGEMENT just like OBAMA.

    You make me sick!!
