Bill Richardson for president?
I just saw this guy on the Daily Show a couple of days ago. He was introduced as someone who was considering running for president, but Jon Stewart got him to say he definitely was running. Two things stuck out from the interview: one, his story of coming face to face with and seriously insulting Saddam Hussein, which was just plain interesting, and two, his matter-of-fact declaration that he was the best qualified presidential candidate. It sounds a little hubristic now as I type this, but: 1) he appears to be clearly better in this department than Obama and Hillary 2) it's good to have someone who realizes that it's important to know what your doing and 3) it's an argument that catches my attention after over 6 years of Bush. Though it may be a good thing we have more time to decide before the primary, if it were tomorrow, I'd vote for him.
