Thanks, Governor Richardson, for the great effort and positive issues-focused campaign

SANTA FE -- It is being reported that Gov. Bill Richardson will end his bid for the White House.
If true, I am bummed to see him go, but it is probably a wise move.
Returning to the great state of New Mexico as full time Governor must seem very attractive to Bill after the punishing campaign road.
If he leaves the race, watch for Richardson to eventually support Obama, as he did in Iowa.
Gov. Richardson may also emerge as the smartest VP choice for the Dems.
I've been strongly backing Richardson, but if he officially ends or suspends his campaign Thursday, I will likely move to Obama or Edwards.
