Bill Richardson: If you don't win, why will that be?

Question: If you don't win, why will that be?

Bill Richardson:

Well because the other candidates get more votes than I will. I suspect because other candidates will have a better message. I think the American people will want a message of who can change this country, who can bring this country together, and who has the experience to do it. I believe I have those attributes over the other candidates; but it may be that the voters may not see it that way, and I respect that. Maybe the next question is gonna be, “What will I do if I lose?” And if I don’t make it – and I believe I will make it . . . I’m very confident that I’ll win the nomination. I may not win all the first early primaries. I just wanna place in the top three in the first few primaries – I’ll go back to being governor of New Mexico, a job that I love because I can make a difference for people as a governor. Because I can wake up in the morning and ride my horse, and be with my family, and be in a state that I love, and in an area of the country that is booming, and is growing, and is pursuing all those American dream objectives that the country has had for years.

The biology of aliens: How much do we know?

Hollywood has created an idea of aliens that doesn't match the science.

Videos
  • Ask someone what they think aliens look like and you'll probably get a description heavily informed by films and pop culture. The existence of life beyond our planet has yet to be confirmed, but there are clues as to the biology of extraterrestrials in science.
  • "Don't give them claws," says biologist E.O. Wilson. "Claws are for carnivores and you've got to be an omnivore to be an E.T. There just isn't enough energy available in the next trophic level down to maintain big populations and stable populations that can evolve civilization."
  • In this compilation, Wilson, theoretical physicist Michio Kaku, Bill Nye, and evolutionary biologist Jonathan B. Losos explain why aliens don't look like us and why Hollywood depictions are mostly inaccurate.
