Bill Richardson Says 'No' to Kerry VP Slot

New Mexico's Governor, Bill Richardson, has withdrawn his name from consideration as a vice-presidential candidate to John Kerry.

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, one of the country's top Hispanic Democrats, on Thursday told John Kerry he no longer wants to be considered as a possible running mate. Richardson said he wants to keep a promise to the people of New Mexico to serve a full, four-year term and noted that Kerry has "numerous experienced and talented leaders" from which to choose a vice presidential candidate.

"It is with that knowledge and comfort that I must tell you that I respectfully remove myself from the selection process and withdraw my name from consideration for the vice presidential nomination," Richardson said.

Good. Less competition for John Edwards.
