On Deck: Bill Richardson

Days Until Bush Leaves Office = 691

New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson has scheduled a breakfast this coming Saturday at a cafĂ© not far from our house, so I’ll be heading over to see him there. I thought Richardson’s recent speech to the DNC Winter Meeting was worthwhile, if far from electrifying, and I’ll be interested in hearing what he has to say on Iraq (the surge, how/when we get out, and what happens then), Iran and North Korea, and, while he’s here, maybe healthcare and campaign finance reform.

I think Bill Richardson has the chops to contribute substance to the issue debates in this campaign, so I’m looking forward to meeting him. Look for the usual write up after the event.

There are also rumors abroad that Hillary Clinton will be in town next Monday, but details are pretty sketchy so far. More on that as it develops.
