Gov. Bill Richardson, President?!?

New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson is now a Presidential contender.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson said Sunday he is taking the first step toward an expected White House run in 2008, offering extensive experience in Washington and the world stage as he seeks to become the first Hispanic president.

"I am taking this step because we have to repair the damage that's been done to our country over the last six years," said Richardson, a Democrat and former congressman, U.N. ambassador and Energy Department secretary.

"Our reputation in the world is diminished, our economy has languished, and civility and common decency in government has perished," he said in a statement.
I like Bill. He is my preferred candidate from either side of the aisle. But we have a long road to travel to make his Presidential hopes successful.
