    Is it to Obama's credit that he didn't choose Richardson for a higher position?

    Or just the way it worked out?
    I'm sure that you are right... and if the MSM find that a Republican was $10 late in an income tax payment at the same time that a youtube video shows Obama passing cash to Blagojevich, they will investigate the hell out of that Republican!

    I wonder if the investigation began before or after Richardson threw Hillery under the bus?

    This is all so Clintonesque.

    Yeah... Richardson speaks the language of the new "American" consuming masses passing right through his state on the way to bigger and better things.

    Ah. I'm not a big fan of "off the record sources." Look what they did to Richard Jewell. I'll just wait until the grand jury has done it's thing, and see what the facts turn out to be. Not that I care one way or the other, it's just that character assassination by innuendo has become rampant in this gossip-thirsty society, and our journalistic standards have slipped so far into the gutter that we can't believe half of what we hear on the news nowadays.

    Thanks for the info!

    I would venture a guess that he's doing this for Obama at his own expense. If not I can't make much sense of this

    You might be right... but Richardson deserves some credit here. It is extremely rare that a Democrat removes him or herself from office or a prized appointment just because there is an air of corruption hanging over his/her head (e.g. Blagojevich, Frank, Dodd, CLINTONs, Jefferson, etc.) It helps to have a sympathetic press behind your side!

    Maybe.

    Or, Hillary is playin' a lil' get-back. Or, Obama's people picked up on it and decided to manage it before it started managing them and told Richardson to play it this way. Or, or...... the conspiracy theories are sure to come out of the woodwork soon.

    My guess is that the Clinton's are behind it.

    I was just posting about Dr. who, and now I suspect that TC is Captain Jack from the spinoff, Torchwood.
