Bill Richardson is calling it quits. My source inside the campaign says Richardson will be officially dropping out of the presidential race tomorrow.

While Lou Dobbs reported that Richardson was calling it quits, he retracted the statement and said they couldn't confirm it.

UPDATE 11:55pm: My source says Richardson will not be making an endorsement of the other candidates.

Governor Richardson guest posted twice to the Project:
Bill Richardson: I screwed up
Bill Richardson: LGBT Americans have been denied their civil rights for too long

Yeah I saw that too...


Vice President Bill Richardson?

No endorsements? That's the best part of a candidate dropping out!

I guess he doesn't want to screw his chances of a VP position with any of the others.

That's what I was thinking too.

That's what he was running for the entire time. I don't think he'll get it though. New Mexico is already a blue state. They need someone that'll carry some red states - and Richardson is not that guy. Same with Barack - Illinois already goes blue. (Although if he stays this popular it would help to flip states, then she'd have a super popular veep which no President wants. He wouldn't get picked for that reason then.) John Edwards or Evan Bayh are more likely picks.

Bil,

What's with your comment "Same with Barack - Illinois already goes blue. (Although if he stays this popular it would help to flip states, then she'd have a super popular veep which no President wants. He wouldn't get picked for that reason then.)?

Do you have secret inside information about Hillary Clinton winning the Democratic nomination?

Its still a long way to go before we have a nominee and by no means that Clinton have it all wrapped up.

Well, that's true, Michael. I could have used Barack as an example and who he'd choose. I'd just woken up and, well, I still think it's going to end up Hillary in the end. No knock to Barack, I just think the Clinton machine is pretty formidable!

And the general comments stands - if she wins the nomination there's no way in hell she'll choose Barack as veep simply because she wouldn't want to be overshadowed by the 2nd in command. If you put the 1st woman and the 1st AA in office, they're both historic AND you don't want a veep who is more popular than the Pres...

Who do you think Barack would choose as a running mate, Michael?

It's funny, I was just talking about this with a friend yesterday, and we came up with our dream ticket: Obama-Kucinich.

The left would be dancing in the streets, it would revitalize Democratic Party's progressive base, and change the political climate as we know it of the entire country.

Unfortunately, I doubt we'll ever see it actually happen.

I was thinking Kucinich myself but I doubt it. Not sure who would fit with Obama though I think Edwards has been applying for the job for months especially after seing him at the NH debates.

Evan Bayh is the most likely running mate for Clinton. At least he won't be as much of an embarrasment as Dan Quayle (well, we can hope not).

Gov.Richardson was the one Democrate I was totaly comfy with now hes gone but I saw a story on Yahoo news that when asked most NH Democrats would love to see him as VP.But he is in my opion perfect for Secatary of State since even Bush has used him to talk with the North Koreans.
