Sad news

Richardson withdraws bid to be commerce secretary

Bill Richardson was my first choice for president at the start of the campaign. After he withdrew, and my second choice was elected, I was hoping Obama would choose him for secretary of state. I'm sure he would have done well as Commerce secretary.

I have no idea whether there is any truth to the allegations. I'm hoping that there is none, and that Richardson is just taking advantage of a face-saving way out of the Commerce post--which I suspect he realized too late was in no way a career advancement for him. (He has already had a cabinet post.)
