The ticket (part II)

On Saturday, I took a look at the issue of who would make the best Vice Presidential candidate. My conclusion was that Bill Richardson was the man to balance Obama's ticket.

In a 'to be broadcast' CNN interview, Bill Richardson shows very little leg but seems to be moving toward an endorsement. If he endorses before Texas it could have a very marginal impact on the Latino vote in Texas but everything counts at this stage. The campaign he endorses will certainly make the most of it.

Let's see what happens but it would be devastating for Hillary if he fails to endorse her having served in two senior positions in her husband's second administration. But it is clear from the interview that he would be willing to consider a Vice Presidential nomination. I still like the sound and feel of an Obama-Richardson ticket but let's see whether Richardson rules himself in or out.
