"Mr. Richardson's endorsement came right around the anniversary of the day when Judas sold out (Jesus) for 30 pieces of silver, so I think the timing is appropriate, if ironic."
Bill Richardson might have earned himself an epithet that will not go away easily. While the contest between Clinton and Obama has its own twist and turns, Richardson seemed to have carved out his own niche amidst the fray that will overshadow his service to this country on a national level. The niche is that of a political Judas.
Professing great fondness and gratitude for the Clintons, the New Mexico Governor did a 180 and endorsed Obama, the peddler of false hopes and the spiritual offspring of Pastor Jeremiah Wright. Richardson went on to stress that Obama is a once in a lifetime leader, and then added that it ( American politics ) should not be just Bush-Clinton, Clinton-Bush. Then, as if to create his own safety net, Richardson pledged to strongly support Hillary Clinton if and when she becomes the nominee.
In my opinion, Richardson is working both sides of the street. His pledge to support Hillary serves no one but himself. It is a safety net in case his treason does not work, and he can always ingratiate himself to the Clintons once again. This man does not know the meaning of friendship, and he does not respect personal debts. Richardson should have stayed neutral considering that he owes his national stature to the Clintons.
