From today's Olympian:

Richardson would bring all troops home

In a recent Democratic presidential candidates’ debate at Dartmouth, we finally got to see where the candidates really stand on Iraq.

Of the top four candidates, only one committed to bringing all of the troops home within his first term as president: Gov. Bill Richardson. It’s no coincidence that Richardson is the candidate with the most foreign policy experience and possesses diplomatic skills unsurpassed by any of his rivals.

Sens. Clinton, Obama and Edwards all have said they would leave troops in Iraq, and in the debate, were unable to commit to getting all of the troops out before 2013.

Residual troops equals stay the course, and that’s simply unacceptable. Bill Richardson is a proven leader with real results, and he’s committed to bringing Bush’s foreign policy debacle to an end immediately. Can we afford another five years of stay the course? I don’t think so.

No doubt about it. The question is, why isn't Gov. Richardson the frontrunner in the dem primaries, when polls in Iowa and N.H. show the overriding concern for democrats in this election is getting out of Iraq? What's not working - he should be ahead by a huge margin, since he is the only candidate who will end the Iraq War. lazslo@earthlink.net

Just thought I would share this information for anyone who wants to support Richardson. I bought a bunch of stuff from http://www.richardsoncampus.com for a rally that we had at my school and I just wanted to recommend it because it's inexspensive, fast and I know people don't have a lot of money to spend on bumper stickers and T shirts. I think we should be able to support Richardson without going broke!
