Denver Post Endorses Richardson for Running Mate

Granted, I wanted him at the top of the ticket, but I will be happy as long as he is a part of the ticket...

This from the Denver Post yesterday...

"When Barack Obama comes to Denver later this month to formally accept the Democratic Party's nomination for president, we hope he will have a son of the West — New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson — by his side as his running mate. Insiders suggest that Obama is mulling Richardson and Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh, among others, as potential vice presidential candidates.

"We think there's only one direction to go. The first test of a vice president is whether he or she is qualified to serve in the top job should the occasion arise. Richardson clearly leads all other Democratic contenders by that standard. His outstanding record makes him an ideal partner for Obama, not only on the campaign trail but at the vital job of shaping America's future...

The editor at The Denver Post closes his case for Richarsdon, saying, "Richardson's record not only qualifies him to assume the presidency, it makes him an ideal partner to the visionary and eloquent Obama in the task of running this country. And as a leading figure in a Rocky Mountain West that has emerged as a swing political region, Richardson could do more than any other possible running mate to carry the Democratic ticket to victory in November."
I couldn't agree more, Richardson adds so much to the ticket, and does nothing to detract. He is bright, witty, and personable, and would be the perfect running mate for Obama.
