Bill comes due: Richardson backs Obama
It was no slam dunk, and came just hours after John Edwards failed to deliver on Leno. Obama’s address on race in Philadelphia on Tuesday appeared to sway Richardson, "who sent word to the senator that he was inspired and impressed by the speech," The New York Times reports. "Aides said the endorsement was locked down over the following two days." Richardson: “I believe he is the kind of once-in-a-lifetime leader that can bring our nation together and restore America’s moral leadership in the world."
