Carville: Bill Richarson is Judas

James Carville is quoted in the NYT on Bill Richardson's endorsement of Barack Obama today ...
“Mr. Richardson’s endorsement came right around the anniversary of the day when Judas sold out for 30 pieces of silver, so I think the timing is appropriate, if ironic,” Mr. Carville said, referring to Holy Week
Analogies are dangerous.  I understand that he is comparing Richardson to Judas -- but in so doing, is he also comparing Bill Clinton to Jesus?

Regardless, I understand why the Clinton folks are angry.  They helped build Richardson's career, after all, and now -- when they need him the most -- Richardson abandons them. 

I'm not sure what the lesson to be learned is.  It could be that people are fickle and will be loyal to you only when it serves their interest.  Or it could be that both Clinton and Richardson are opportunists, and that there's no "honor among thieves." 

I'm guessing Obama's sales pitch to former Clinton loyalists like Richardson is that they can either be a part of the future or a part of the past.  That might be a seductive message if you are hoping to run for president in the future.  ... And my guess is Bill Richardson plans on being the president some day.
