    Don't worry Bill Clinton, from what the hispanic community has said, they will not support Obama and didn't like what Richardson did. Besides, just before endorsing Obama, he changed his look to make himself look more hispanic. – What a joke

    I will make my prediction: Richardson will be the vice presidential runningmate for Obama.

    Lets see if I'm right!

    All Bill Clinton can claim credit for is the fact that he recognized a person worthy of a chance. Nothing more, nothing less....Bill Richardson did what Bill and Hillary Clinton are incapable of doing–putting America before themselves.

    As the Arkansas Bar and the federal court in Little Rock already know, the fact that Bill Clinton is a liar is very old news.

    The Clintons are acting like spoiled brats with big egos and a strong sense of entitlement. Bill Richardson chose to support the grown-up – Obama!

    Remember, Obama has very close relationship with his pastor, Wright. He will lose November election.

    if hillary clinton wins the popular vote and the swing states have her beating mccain, and delegates change their minds and vote for clinton, than you would go along with the delegates voting for hillary. i think not. you obama supporters are a work of art.

    Maybe if Hillary won the nomination for president Monica might answer the phone asking for Bill again. Rick K

    I have lost respect for Bill Richardson due to his handling of his endorsement. Not only is he "loyalty challenged," his rationale for endorsing Obama seems immature and shallow.

    Wise choice, Bill Richardson!

    Like you, we have had enough of the Clintons!

    Obama is the best candidate for the US President.

    I would have posted sooner but I had to avoid the sniper fire. LOL!!

    Leave Richardson a alone, what has he done to you? kicked your dog or cat? stole your car? slept with your spouse? No. So what if he endorsed Obama. This has nothing to with price of potatoes in China?

    If you vote for McCain because you don't like the one of the other candidates then please don't stick us with that clown and his selections to the supreme court.

    The most troubling aspect of all this is the Clintons sense of entitlement. They will do and say whatever is necessary to get back in that White Houseā€¦. scary.

    Thank you Gov. Richardson for standing up for the rest of us.

    Bill Richardson is a clown, a back stabber, betrayer and cunning guy.
    Don't worry, he will realize what did he do wrong. Obama will never make nominee, because Dems know Obama will not win at General Election. Dems had twice failure, this time they will not make another mistake. They know Hillary is the only person can beat McCain easily.
    Pay attention Pennsylvania 22 April Election, next Indiana, NC, WV, KY,OR. MT and SD, I can't wait. Go Hillary, you are the CHAMPION.

    But did Hillary Clinton really 'win' New Mexico? Seems I read articles about possible fraud–vote boxes going home w/election officials then counted the next day?

    Googled 2008 Primary Fraud and found links to articles about primary fraud in several other states, too!
