    Sorry about usuing such an unreliable source...

    Mr. Clinton helped elevate Mr. Richardson to the national stage by naming him his energy secretary and ambassador to the United Nations. And Mr. Clinton left no doubt that he viewed Mr. Richardson’s support as important to his wife’s campaign: He even flew to New Mexico to watch the Super Bowl with Mr. Richardson as part of the Clintons’ high-profile courtship of him.

    But Mr. Richardson stopped returning Mr. Clinton’s calls days ago, Mr. Clinton’s aides said. And as of Friday, Mr. Richardson said, he had yet to pick up the phone to tell Mr. Clinton of his decision.

    The reaction of some of Mr. Clinton’s allies suggests that might have been a wise decision. “An act of betrayal,” said James Carville, an adviser to Mrs. Clinton and a friend of Mr. Clinton.

    “Mr. Richardson’s endorsement came right around the anniversary of the day when Judas sold out for 30 pieces of silver, so I think the timing is appropriate, if ironic,” Mr. Carville said, referring to Holy Week.



    Glad to see that the CLinton's till have there lapdog in Carville, at least he has a smart wife.

    This is a distrubing trend with Democrats and I think shows to thier charecter. First AL Gore stabs Lieberman in the back, then Kerry sticks it to his "running mate" Edwards, and now Richardson pulling a "Judas" on the Clintons. Don't you people have any loyalty? or is it all about staying in power?

    that's the problem with politics. it detracts from following your convictions and pressures one to do things based on allegances and favors.

    In politics there is no loyalty, they are all a bunch of whores all selling themselves to the highest bidder.. even Richardson can see the writing on the wall.
