Bill Richardson

BILL RICHARDSON….I’m only tossing this out because the week is winding down and there isn’t much else to talk about at the moment, but here’s another observation about the fundraising totals announced this week: didn’t Bill Richardson do awfully well? Sure, $6 million looks anemic compared to the three frontrunners, but in absolute terms that’s pretty impressive, isn’t it? If he keeps it up, he’ll have a plenty big enough war chest to wage a serious campaign.

I don’t have any big point to make here. It just seems like Richardson deserves a little more attention for raising that kind of money with virtually no name recognition.
