Richardson, currently Governor of New Mexico, and a Democratic Presidential candidate who has a very impressive record from his years in Government service, has flat out adopted the views of Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel, and has stated that as President, he will withdraw every one of our troops from Iraq. That, assuming our present Congress hasn't done it first(a safe assumption).

The following is excerpted from a press release. Thanks to Crooks and

New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson today drew a sharp distinction between his views on the war in Iraq and the views of the other major candidates running for the 2008 Democratic Presidential nomination. Governor Richardson addressed the Take Back America Conference in Washington, DC, and clearly showed why his plan to end the Iraq is bold and the best course of action.
“I applaud my fellow Democratic candidates for taking on President Bush in the Congress,” said Governor Richardson.”But there is a fundamental difference in this campaign — and that’s how many troops each of us would leave behind. I would leave zero troops. Not a single one.”
Governor Richardson reiterated his call for Congress to use its constitutional authority to de-authorize the war and bring all American troops home by the end of this calendar year."

With this unequivocal stand, Richardson, who is far more electable than Kucinich or Gravel, sounds like a savior to me, and I'm sure to many progressives and others who are sick to death of the carnage we are sponsoring in Iraq. We elected the Democrats in 2006 to do this job for us, but it looks like "no dice" from those wimpy weasels. Richardson will have my vote unless Jesus Christ leaves the Republican party and runs as an Independent.

For those of you who are too lazy to check out Richardson's bona fides, watch this short campaign video for a good synopsis of his record:

All he needs is money and media recognition, because he can walk all over the field of candidates based on his accomplishments. Care to join me with a show of support?
