Bill Richardson Out!

Another one bites the dust! Though he hasn’t yet made it official, Democrat Bill Richardson dropped his presidential bid.

Richardson is shelving his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination after back-to-back fourth-place finishes in the first two contests in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Richardson, 60, planned to announce his plans Thursday, according to two people close to the governor with knowledge of the decision. They spoke late Wednesday on condition of anonymity in advance of the governor’s remarks.

Richardson has not given an other candidate his support. He did, however, tacitly endorsed Obama during the Iowa caucuses, which no doubt pissed off the Clintons.

Bill, of course, gave Richardson a seat in his cabinet. We doubt Hillary will do the same…

    Maybe Bill should have counted the votes in New Mexico and stopped the 2004 Presidential theft! I thought he was running for future Secretary of State anyway.

    The moral: never buy a toupee mail order. By the way, those in contact with Bill in New Mexico and DC know him as an ass-grabber and all-around buffoon in the presence of women. I find this behavior a choice. Y’know, like he finds homosexuality a choice.

    You’re all ignorant. This blog is such bullshit, this is my first and last visit. A) Richardson never told his supporters to go to Obama, I was WORKING for the Richardson campaign in Iowa I think I should KNOW! B) Richardson has the best history of standing up for gay rights. Get it through your thick ignorant skulls, morons.

    Bill Richardson wins the likeable stakes but it’s a rockstar race now. His endorsement is looming large and I hope he does endorse Hillary at the right time. Barack has been endorsed by the media so he doesn’t need Bill. KC has voices in his head about a B.O endorsement by Bill. I wish someone would grab my ass. Is Edwards still in the race? He’s so also-ran already.
