Oh, and Bill Richardson

I need to note that New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson announced he will seek the Democratic nomination. He set up an exploratory committee this week.

If he runs, this will make for one of the most diverse Democratic fields in U.S. history. Richardson has Hispanic roots. His mother is Mexican.

He also is making the right moves with regard to making himself appear presidential. A few months back, he traveled to Darfur, Sudan to help negotiate a cease-fire between rebel leaders and the government. That's definately something we'll see him touting in speeches and advertisements down the line.
