Obama/Richardson ’08?March 21, 2008
Capt. Ed asks the question: Richardson’s bid for VP?
Ed, of course, is asking in the context of Bill Richardson’s endorsement of Barack Obama. Given the rather dramatic fashion with which the endorsement was delivered (I was watching it live on CNN), I think he might be on to something. There was a vibe there that went a little beyond the superficial political maneuver that would otherwise define an endorsement like this.
If we’re right, I suppose that I should point out that I called it on the very same blog a couple weeks ago:
Based on Richardson’s significant amount of experience and his position on the issues, I think he’d be a fine choice as a running mate.
