Guess We Know Who Has the "Conservative" Dem Vote Locked Down ...

Is Bill Richardson running for the GOP nomination -- or the Dem nomination???

According to The LA Times:

Speaking as state party activists wound down their three-day convention in San Diego, the North Carolina Democrat told reporters that "paying additional taxes, an excess-profits, excess-income tax" was a notion "worthy of consideration." He did not offer specifics.

But New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, who followed Edwards to the lectern after addressing delegates, swiftly disagreed. "Democrats, whenever we have a solution, we want to tax," Richardson said. "I'm different. I'm a tax cutter."


Asked to name the model of a justice he would appoint to the Supreme Court, Richardson cited the late Byron R. White — one of two dissenters in the Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing abortion.
