    He had it coming. What goes around comes around. :D
    He back stabbed Hillary in the primaries, trying to positioned himself with a VP position. This is why James carville called him Judas

    The hypocrisy behind the dem party just keep piling on.... :D

    Yeah.....Obama's/Emmanuel's opinions, on who they'd prefer seeing getting Obama's Senate-seat was a reeeeaaaallll-fiasco (for soap-opera fans, mostly).

    Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....what was the body-count, again?

    What's the fiasco?:confused: He didn't want to be seen as a problem or a distraction for the Obama administration so he withdrew his name more than 2 weeks before even the inauguration.

    Seems like the perfect thing to do.

    President Obama will have a full plate just trying to unwind us out of all these many Bush messes. We ain't got time to play!


    ALL THE BEST TO #44!

    I gave up a long time ago... after the Libby lie fest... trying to understand how the Bush administration justifies anything it does. They were the most above the law click I ever saw. They made the Republican's burglarizing at the Watergate look like pikers or little street punks.

    As far a Richardson this was obviously the smartest move no matter what happens. If he did anything wrong at all then he shouldn't get the job... and if he did nothing wrong (which I'm more likely to think) he still knew it would be a big distraction at a time when we need to move quickly to get some things done.

    So I feel sorry for him if he's completely cleared of any wrongdoing... but there's always other opportunities in this administration down the road.
