The most experienced candidate for President, regardless of party, is apparently set to close up shop.
My blog has highlighted the fact that I am, errrr, was a big Kucinich guy. Kucinich was the most progressive candidate, but even contemplating the idea of running with Mr Revolution, Ron Paul, began to turn me off.
Bill Richardson does not have the panache of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, or John Edwards. But he has as much experience as that group combined. Multiple terms as a US Congressman, Ambassador to the United Nations, Secretary of Energy, and most recently, Governor of New Mexico.
He's not the candidate celebrity, just a damn good candidate. I am hoping he becomes the Democratic VP candidate, using his experience behind one of the candidates with lessor experience.
I had hoped that Richardson would at least stick it out until the February 5th precinct caucuses. Looks like Blueman will have to find someone else to vote for.
