I've long thought Bill Richardson is the only viable general election candidate for the Democrats.  I'm curious about how you think he did in his blistering hour-long discussion with Tim Russert this morning.  If you missed it, podcasts are available at mtp.msnbc.com and you can read the transcript here.  Can he really win on this Red Sox and Yankees United platform?

Seemed like he did pretty well to me, although I'd still hope for Obama.

He's one of the few Democrats I'd actually consider voting for.

I love bill Richardson- I can't see myself voting for him in the primary though because it seems like a wasted vote.

i'm a big supporter, but not such a big fan of his performance this am. too submissive and defensive - granted in the face of a very difficult interview. i feel like his problem is general visibility/name rec - most people who know about him support him, but too few people are familiar with him.

Yes, he sounded terribly slippery to me.  I appreciate his candor and willingness to admit that he was wrong on some issues (or that he had changed his mind), but on other questions when he was hammered, he seemed to revert to fairly irrelevant talking points ("I brought home a body from North Korea!").  He's too genial to be singled out as defensive in this woeful bunch, but I was nonetheless slightly disappointed.  But then again, I don't have a real rooting interest in this fight.

Me too.  Id vote Richardson over Hilary though.

I'd vote Guiliani over Clinton tbh. Good thing I'm not allowed to vote.

I will never understand the way people admire Giuliani from afar.  He is really just a meanspirited man with ultimately fascistic tendencies. When you get to NYC, you'll hear this from all corners, KeNo, not just the loony left (like myself).
