Headline: Bill Richardson Ends His White House Run

After distant finishes in both the Iowa and New Hampshire primaries, Governor Bill Richardson formally ended his Presidential bid today. Richardson's campaign, while never garnering a lot of official support via the ballot box, added a positive and policy-nuanced layer to the discussion. One of the most experienced candidates, with a cabinet position and a governorship under his belt, he campaigned hard, keeping what became his signature sense of humor during debates and on the trail.

Shortly after his announcement, he appeared on CNN's Situation Room, saying, "I feel I did all I could, so I leave satisfied that I helped shape the process."

He's not endorsing any other candidate presently, saying that he wants to let the primaries shape themselves and for now, focus on being a good governor of New Mexico.

Were you a Bill Richardson supporter? Are you sad to see him go?

What little research I've done on him, he seems intelligent and experienced. I think we should keep an eye on him though, I can see him getting a pretty high position if a democrat wins the presidential election.

I wasn't trying to argue anything, I was just saying what they think about it. I haven't really kept up with Richardson at all, but I do hear their politics and their passion about it.

I don't know about all that, but he has a damn good political record. My BFF's folks live in Membres (sp?) & like him alot. His proposed energy policy is amazing!

My family from New Mexico hated him. The only positive thing they could say about him was that he was a good negotiator. They wanted him to continue his bid just to get him out of NM. There are also tons of allegations of him firing employees after their wives turned down his advances, so that's icky.

I was (& still am) a HUGE Richardson supporter. Hands down, he has the most experience of any of the candidates from both parties. I went to a rally of his out on Bowens Island & he is so inspirational & really knows his stuff. I am so upset that he dropped out. But he would make an excellent running mate & I hope that which ever flashy candidate get the nom will realize that
