Bill, Contradicted.

Governor Bill Richardson denied yesterday that he promised Bill and Hillary Clinton not to endorse Barack Obama.

Former President Clinton claimed that Richardson told him “five times” that he wouldn’t back Obama, but Richardson says otherwise: “I never saw [Clinton] five times. I saw him when he watched the Super Bowl with me. We made it very clear to him that he shouldn’t expect an endorsement after that meeting.”

Richardson also tells CNN that he had considered going out for Hillary, but changed his mind once “the campaign got nasty.”
