New Mexico Governor and former Clinton cabinet secretary Bill Richardson, is considering a run for the presidency.  With his last name, “Richardson,” though, it is unlikely he will bring our many Hispanic voters.

He has been trying to eat chili rellenos publicly as much as possible, and though nearly tone deaf, has been singing the national anthem in Spanish at almost all campaign events.  “I know Spanish extremely well,” he said.  “I am Hispanic, after all.  I actually am.  Ask my Mom, for God’s sake.”
