Bill Richardson defended himself today from the "personal attacks and insults" he has received—most notably from James Carville, who likened him to Judas—since he endorsed Barack Obama. “We need to move on from the politics of personal insult,” the New Mexico governor wrote in a Washington Post essay.
Richardson, who rejected Carville's claims that he ignored calls from Bill Clinton, acknowledged that he owes the former president for the “extraordinary opportunities” he was given. But that's not reason enough to endorse Hillary. “Would someone who worked for Carville owe his wife loyalty in her professional pursuits?” he asked.
