29. Good choice!
How does it feel to have finally settled on a candidate? It was a great relief for me, personally. I like Obama too, but just feel he needs a little more weathering, so I settled on Biden (despite IWR)-although I like Richardson too.
Richardson is a fine candidate and I think he is greatly overlooked, and I would proudly support him should he win the nomination.
