I thought he was terrible in the debate...he just kept going around in circles with his canned speech.

Sorry gov., you were mildly funny but mostly embarrassing. But stay in NH, we have little need for you here.

Actually as a conservative voter I like Richardson

Obama or Hillary will make me vote Republican regardless if there first name is Richard and Nixon

I just dislike and do not trust Obama or Hillary as far as I can spit....and I cannot spit far!

It's over for Richardson. He should drop out and endorse Obama.

Richardson would do well to quit now. Unfortunately, he doesn't have the same chance as a snowball in hell.

You know, he's an incredibly intelligent person, and has one of the greatest sense of humor, that I have ever seen. However, I think the Presidency is over-reaching. He's extremely good at foreign policy, no doubt. I won't say a bad word about him.

I would not vote for Richardson. I think he has a long way to go before he can become President. However I did watch him as I was flipping TV stations yesterday and he was on Univision a spanish TV station. Jorge Ramos who thinks he knows everything made a total fool of himself when he was questioning Gov. Richardson. Mr. Richardson told him exactly what he thought of Jorge and the news coverage that Univision is only thinking about "illegal immigration" being the only issue at stake. Gov. Richardson told him that the most important issues were 1) the war on Iraq, 2) economy 3) healthcare and last of all illegal immigration. I think Jorge Ramos needs to not invite educated people onto his program as he is made a total fool..........

I agree. John Edwards should be Attorney General or head of Labor Relations. Who knows, Obama might pick Edwards for a running mate.

I actually saw that interview too but could not understand and traslate it all.... although I tried.

Richardson was able to communicate in Spanish effectively....that was quite impressive....

I am feeling him for 2012 already if we cannot do something with him in 2008

Edwards has already been there and done that. He's too far left for Hillary. I'd say Richardson is going to be someone's VP nomination. Hillary isn't going down without a fight and Obama and Edwards are going to fade away. McCain is going to win in New Hampshire. Romney reminds too many people of Kerry, Rudy has too much baggage, and Huckabee had a moment in Iowa but that Southern Preacher thing doesn't play well in the rest of the country. If McCain can convince Republicans that he understands that immigration reform is a no no, he's going to step up. McCain is the only horse in the race, that can beat Clinton.

Richardson actually has the most experience of any candidate, but he doesn't seem to have excited people much. Several terms in Congress, two cabinet posts, some impressive foreign relations credentials, and Governor of a state. I think he is too "homey" to appeal to many people, but I could easily see him as Secretary of State, whomever gets elected.

Interesting & well thought analysis!

I would argue that HRC is already in that fight and if Obama wins NH then he will not survive any tougher scrutiny - just a gut feeling. And that would leave Edwards. But then, I am a little biased.
