Billy and Barack, Sittin' in a Tree?

R-U-N-N-I-N-G ? together? ???

Seems like it wasn't all that long ago that Bill Richardson had his nose stuck up Hillary's skirt as far as Chris Matthews wished he could get his. Like the debate where John Edwards brought up a part of Hillary's voting record, and Hillary accused him of slinging mud. Richardson jumped right in there, ready to pick her up while she stumbled in her argument since Edwards was correct in every respect and she knew she had no ground on which to stand. Even though I don't remember Richardson ever attacking Barack, I don't remember him defending him ever either. So what does the Richardson endorsement reeeeeeally mean?

He believes that Hillary is toast. (or should be) He believes she should step aside for Barack. For the sake of unity and party? I'm not so sure. I used to believe FIRMLY that he wanted to be Hillary's VP, regardless of his saying not. He's no fool; he's been around the block a few times; he can read the tea leaves. He knows that IF he's going to be a VP, it WON'T be with her.

Of course all this wondering assumes that Chimperor Dubya the Nukuler and his sidekick Darth are going to allow elections at all.
