Gov. Bill Richardson: Your thoughts?

If Richardson was to run for President in 2008, he would probably have the most experience out of any candidate: Governor, Cabinet Secretary, U.N. Ambassador and a host of other positions. He is also hispanic and can help gain this emerging demographic that largely consists of swing voters. In addition, Richardson is governor of a battleground state and can easily flip it blue and may even have an advantage in carrying other southwest border states.

That being said, I hear hardly anything about Richardson. Back during the 2004 election when his name was mentioned as a possible running mate, many on this board said he had certain skeletons in his closet. Also, some say that he is a DLC'er.

So, would you support this guy for President? Is he progressive enough? Any gripes? Just curious, because I never hear people on DU talk about this guy which is weird considering his resume is Presidential material.

edit: spelling
