Harvard Law Record Loves Governor Richardson

The Harvard Law Record loves Governor Richardson.

More accurately, our friend Andrea Saenz from the Bill Richardson Blog, had an editorial today in that fine publication, expressing her support for Governor Richardson.

Here is a sample:

Bill Richardson is often called the candidate with the most impressive resume; what that really means is he’s the most skilled and proven leader of all the candidates, Democrats and Republicans alike. Richardson, a graduate of the Tufts Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, has been a member of Congress, Secretary of Energy, Ambassador to the U.N., and Governor of New Mexico, where he’s so well-regarded that in his re-election campaign he got 40% of the Republican vote. He’s spent his term improving schools, investing in health care and renewable energy, and creating high-tech jobs - all while lowering taxes and maintaining the highest budget reserves in state history. No, really.

On top of that, Richardson has negotiated internationally on behalf of the U.S. for more than a decade, including during the Bush Administration; he’s negotiated the release of hostages in Iraq and Cuba, met with North Korea, the Taliban, and Saddam Hussein, and just three weeks ago, spent time in Darfur negotiating a cease-fire and peace summit with the Sudanese government and rebel groups. Diplomacy! Remember that? How about a President who not only believes in it, but is already skilled and well-respected by world leaders? Imagine the change a President Richardson would bring to America’s diplomatic efforts.

There is no substitute for experienced leadership. Richardson for President.
