Thursday in Rio Rancho it was just like a campaign rally of old. Cheers echoed inside the high school’s gymnasium as President Obama held a town hall meeting.
While we might wish that his presidency had a little less of the campaign style and more of a presidential flavor to it, it is what it is.
But there was one thing that was different from the campaign – where was the governor?
During Obama’s campaign stops, Gov. Richardson was right there, front and center. He was the ringmaster, leading the charge.
But Thursday he could hardly be seen.
If you looked hard enough you could finally find him, tucked away in the corner.
So while the president focused his talk on credit card reform, Richardson sat there with his head down. He was not on stage or in view.
In fact, the president never came near him and only mentioned the governor once – at the beginning of the rally.
While the president discussed the need for an immediate overhaul of the credit card industry and his commitment to signing the Credit Card Bill of Rights into law by Memorial Day, Richardson sat quietly alone.
When the audience erupted in cheers for Obama, there was no sharing of the spotlight for the governor.
