Question:  Are you running for Vice President?

Bill Richardson: No. No. Why does everyone always ask me that? No. I don’t wanna be Vice President. I will return as governor of New Mexico if I don’t win. But I wanna tell you that I feel confident that I’m going to win eventually. It’s not gonna be an easy first strike. It’s gonna take several primaries. I love being a candidate. I love people. I believe I’m gonna get a good boost in Iowa and New Hampshire, and I’m gonna be on my way to the nomination. But no I don’t wanna be Vice President. I’ve been in Washington. I’ve had those honors before – UN Ambassador, Secretary of Energy. I love being governor. I’ve got three years to go. I’ve got so many things I wanna do in my state, too. Recorded on: 11/28/07
