Gearing Up For An Iowa Surprise?

An article at says that what they call "Richmentum"--momentum for Gov. Bill Richardson--may be the big story Thursday when Iowans caucus.

Then, in this article in the Des Moines Register, David Yepsen, Iowa's premier political reporter, discusses the electability of each of the major candidates and has much to say--that you've already heard here--about Bill Richardson's unique strength among the Democratic candidates to win in Western states.

Four days until the Iowa caucuses....

A Break For Christmas and a Re-Run of "Why Bill Richardson? Why Now?"

I'm out of the blogging world for a week or so for the holidays, but, with the Iowa caucuses only two weeks away from today, Bill Richardson is still campaigning strong. He has a new ad which stresses his position as the only one of the top four Dems who has a plan to withdraw all our troops from Iraq within a year of taking office. And, with over half of Iowa and NH voters still saying they could change their minds between now and caucus/primary day, Governor Richardson is still in this race to win. So, in the interest of making the best case I can for the Gov, I'm going to link you back to a post I did way back on March 30 of this year. It's called, "Why Bill Richardson? Why Now?" While that was a long time ago, the arguments for Bill Richardson are still as strong as they were then, albeit with an even better pitch now that he is the best person to get us out of Iraq and restore our foreign-policy credibility. Have a great Christmas season and I'll talk to you again in a week or so as caucus and primary time looms large.

Iraq: Don't Ignore the Elephant in the Room

Here's a link to a Huffington Post article by Bill Richardson addressing the Iraq war and the need to make sure that its swift resolution is a prominent issue in the campaign. Of late, it seems like the war has been taking a back seat to other topics at the debates. That needs to change.
