Breaking news reported from AP, Bill Richardson, seen above looking for votes in all the wrong places, has just announced that he will drop out of the race for the democratic party nomination for president. Planning to make the official announcement on Thursday, two people close to the governor have apparently leaked the news a day early. This follows two disappointing fourth place finishes in Iowa and New Hampshire. As one of the major remaining “experience” candidates, as well as Secretary of Energy in Bill Clinton’s cabinet and ambassador to the UN during the Clinton administration, will this news further bolster Clinton’s campaign? Will Mike Gravel, or better yet, John Edwards take a hint and follow suit? Only time will tell.
