Obama to Democrats: We're For the Popular Will, Except When We're Not
h/t: Tom In Paine; Politically Drunk
Sunday's NY Times:
"Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico, who endorsed Mr. Obama nearly two months ago, recently called Gov. Bill Ritter Jr. of Colorado, who has yet to endorse a candidate. “Hey, Ritter!” Mr. Richardson said. “After June 3, it means nothing. Those who take a little bit of a risk, he’ll remember you.”
