Why Gov. Bill Richardson is No. 1 in my heart ...
Richardson, who had sought to become the first HISPANIC President (whaa... who said hispanics won't support an african-american candidate?!) bowed out of the race back in January, and while initially supporting Sen. Hillary Clinton, has seen the light and was awestruck by the brilliant speech on race given by Sen. Obama on Tuesday in Philadelphia.
“I believe he is the kind of once-in-a-lifetime leader that can bring our nation together and restore America’s moral leadership in the world,” Mr. Richardson said in the statement, provided by the Obama campaign early Friday morning.
“As a presidential candidate, I know full well Senator Obama’s unique moral ability to inspire the American people to confront our urgent challenges at home and abroad in a spirit of bipartisanship and reconciliation.”
The New Mexico Governor also went on to say:
“...there is no doubt in my mind that Barack Obama has the judgment and courage we need in a commander in chief when our nation’s security is on the line. He showed this judgment by opposing the Iraq war from the start, and he has shown it during this campaign by standing up for a new era in American leadership internationally.”
Guess Bill and Hillary won't be going to any more keggers at the governor's manse in New Mexico.
That's okay, Gov. Richardson; you call a Doll, we'll party.
