Gov. Bill Richardson, the nation's only Latino governor, endorsed Barack Obama today. Senior Clinton campaign strategist Mark Penn responded by characterizing the endorsement as too late and insignificant.
The Clinton camp implied that Richardson's only value is to help with Texas and Hispanics. Ha! With Hispanics as the fastest-growing minority in the country, I guess that's not a big deal. Give me a break!
It's precisely such condescending and belittling comments that lead me to question why anyone can support Hillary Clinton's candidacy. She is too mean-spirited, manipulative and divisive to lead this country.
