Bill Richardson: Yeah, I think two parties are enough. But I wouldn’t obstruct the creation of other parties or movements – the Independent party. I think anybody that shows legitimate support with the public, we shouldn’t just create parties because somebody wants to create them. But there is . . . In the states and nationally, if a certain movement or . . . shows that it’s worthy of being a party, as President I would not oppose their creation. But right now the two party system in America has served us well, even though my big worry is that 48 percent of the American people that are eligible to vote in a presidential election don’t vote. So those parties need to have candidates that are candidates of change with ethics; that talk about change in this country, bringing this country together. Recorded on: 11/20/07
