    Bill Richardson is wrong, Bill gave him a job. If he didn't like the Clintons, he shouldn't have endorsed anyone.

    It is this kind of Clinton sense of entitlement that disturbs fair-minded Democrats: the Clintons are primarily political animals, devoid of primafacia foundational Democratic ethos. In a way, I'm glad they ascribe to the Democratic Party, because they would scare me if they were Republicans (like Reagan, Weinberger, the Bushes, Cheney, and Rove) scare me.

    Who do you believe! We know the Clinton will spin a tale - so, who do you believe?!

    Besides, Richardson has the right to change his mind - if he made any such promise. He is no indebted to the Clinton for the rest of his life!

    The Clinton don't have any right to say anything about promises after they have "raped" and "destroyed" this country!!

    Don't worry about it Bill, you made the right call. You are a true petriot.
    God loves America. HE sends the forefathers to create it, HE sends Abraham Lincoln to start fixing it. HE send Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. to prick its conscience and now, HE sends Barack Obama to try and perfect it.

    Everything is for a good reason , ultimately.

  11. Bill the traitor

    Bill Richardson is the traitor no doubt, he did as part of politics to get VP seat. Bad that he won't get it even Obama gets nomination... he is clever in that...

    Bill clinton words are really right... one should accept his feelings...

    I thought American politics are great and wise, but now I see, it is more messy than any other...

    Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned
    there will be no peace.

    Bill and Hillary Clinton are not to be trusted.

    Tax returns please. Tell us how Hillary made $12 million last year.

    Legally, that is.

    Let's not let the statute of limitations expire on this one!

    To call the traitor Bill Richardson Judas, is an understatement. This nincompoop is a big loser!

    I believed president Clinton that Richardson had promised him 5 times. He is a traitor and liar. He knows if he endorses Obama he will get VP
    position or one of Obama top cabinet . If I were him I should stay neutral.
