Obama picks up Richardson endorsementAlthough New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson served both as a cabinet member for President Clinton and an ambassador to the U.N. for him, he chose to endorse Clinton’s rival, Barack Obama.

After witnessing Barack Obama’s race speech earlier this week, he decided to endorse the Illinois senator.

Joining Obama at a rally in Oregon, Richardson (who watched the Super Bowl with President Clinton at his New Mexico home to get the Governor’s support for his wife) spoke of a man who has the traits of leader like this country hasn’t seen in a generation.

“There is no doubt in my mind that Barack Obama has the judgment and courage we need in a commander-in-chief when our nation’s security is on the line. He showed his judgment by opposing the Iraq war from the start, and he has shown it during this campaign by standing up for a new era in American leadership internationally.”
