Swing and a Miss

Bill Richardson is history.

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson ended his campaign for the presidency Wednesday after twin fourth-place finishes that showed his impressive credentials could not compete with his rivals’ star power.

Richardson planned to announce the decision Thursday, according to two people close to the governor with knowledge of the decision. They spoke on a condition of anonymity in advance of the governor’s announcement.

Richardson stayed in long enough to show the other candidates that he’d be a loyal VEEP. I think he’ll appear on a couple of short lists come April.
