Richardson Endorses Obama

More

Will be officially unveiled at a campaign event in Oregon. I'm not really sure what the Bill Richardson constituency is, but given that while it's lasted his campaign showed the most leadership on trying to get a clear-cut commitment to really ending the war, maybe he'll help Obama get some further credibility with anti-war activists. For my part, though I didn't disagree with the many valid criticisms of Richardson's campaign, I have always wanted to give him credit for mentioning transit and land use issues as part of his energy/global warming pitch.

Iowa and New Hampshire obviously aren't the best audiences for transit talk, but given that the leading contenders represent Chicago and New York it's a bit sad that it took the guy from New Mexico to bring this up.
