If you do not ever forward anything else, please forward this to all your contacts. This is very scary when you think about the future of New Mexico.Failed presidential candidate Bill Richardson, governor of New Mexico, has not been truthful about the reason he dropped out of the presidential race. Although quite popular in New Mexico, where he is affectionately called “Big Bill,” the aspiring politician has a tarnished past.When serving as Secretary of the Department of Energy, Richardson had an illicit relationship with Hillary Clinton, wife of former President Bill Clinton.When Hillary, who simply referred to him as “Bill,” ended the affair, Richardson was shuffled out of the White House.Richardson, however, had developed a strong affinity for power and began dreaming of taking up residence in the nation’s most famous home. Although he repeatedly denied to New Mexico constituents he harbored these aspirations, the governor, sure enough, entered the presidential race in 2007.His campaign did not gain a lot of traction, but the persistent candidate soldiered on, looking forward to the Nevada primary as the spark that would ignite a nationwide grass roots movement.
