Richardson Flies From Clinton's Coop: Endorses Obama
Bill Richardson, former Clinton Secretary of Energy, now former friend and crony, has left the Clinton nest and flown straight to the Obama camp, endorsement in hand with visions of a Vice-President slot dancing in his head.
In an email sent to the Obama camp Richardson praised Hillary as "a distinguished leader with vast experience" while gushing about Obama who would be in Richardson's words, "a historic and great president who can bring us the change we so desperately need by bringing us together as a nation here at home and with our allies abroad".
According to the Brit newspaper, the Telegraph, foreign corespondent Toby Harden claims Richardson's importance as an endorsement force ranks third after Al Gore and John Edwards. He also writes that Richardson's decision was perhaps, a "sheer naked political calculation" as Richardson has "made it clear he desperately wants to be Vice President".
