"Gov. Bill Richardson (D-NM) told a Los Angeles crowd at his formal presidential announcement yesterday,
“This nation needs a leader with a proven track record and an ability to bring people together to tackle our problems here at home and abroad,” he said. “I am that person - not because I say so, but because of what I have done.”
And, unlike the git who holds the office now, he’s done it all. Given the utter incompetence and failure of the current administration, a hard-working politician like Richardson, who has come up through the ranks on his own, toiled as a staffer, a member of Congress, a diplomat, a cabinet sec’y, and now a very successful and progressive governor, would restore credibility to the office of the president.
When you look at the field of Democrats running, it’s hard to imagine any of them as ready for the job as the NM governor is. No president has inherited a worse mess since Andrew Johnson took the oath of office after Lincoln’s assassination, so there’s no time for on-the-job training. Richardson is the only candidate who doesn’t need it. "
