74. Just because they're friends, doesn't preclude the fact that he can endorse whomever he wants

He didn't repeat the conversation, all he said was that it didn't go well. And Carville coming out and calling Richardson Hillary's Judas isn't really helping matters.


Richardson's reply to the Clinton campaign

""I resent the fact that the Clinton people are now saying that my endorsement is too late because I only can help with Texans with Texas and Hispanics, implying that that's my only value," the New Mexico governor told CNN's John King.

"That's typical of some of his advisers that kind of turned me off."Earlier Friday, Clinton campaign senior strategist Mark Penn said he thought Richardson's endorsement came too late to make an impact.

The time that he could have been effective has long since passed," Penn told reporters on a conference call. "I dont think it is a significant endorsement in this environment."

No matter that he said the phone conversation was "painful", the Clinton campaign has then said in effect that Richardson only helps with the Hispanic voters and is like Judas. If the Clintons think so highly of Richardson, you'd think they would reign in their surrogates.
