You think back of the great couples, their linked identities warming our hearts. So many come to mind.• Elvis and Priscilla.•Pebbles and BamBam.•Sonny and Cher.•Elizabeth Taylor andRichard Burton.•Ike and Tina Turner.•Al and Tipper.•John Smith andPocahontas.•Ken and Barbie.•Bill and Hillary.•Bill and Monica•Bill and Gennifer.And then there is Bill Richardson and Diane Denish.We have a soft spot for Bill and Diane.Although not officially New Mexico’s first couple, these two share power at the top with a warm and touching mutual respect. The governor and his lieutenant governor guiding our state to bigger and better things.Oh, sure, there have been playful skirmishes. But when these two kids recently got to serious squabbling, it was disconcerting to all of us.Kind of like watching Mom and Dad fight.We’re still not sure what it was all about.
