Glad to have you here at the Richardson Campus! Over the next few months, we'll be uploading videos, posts and podcasts from contributors around the country. This is a blog for supporters of Bill Richardson to discuss his stance on issues, the presidential race, and politics in general. Anything in the political arena is in play here--while Governor Richardson is the center of this site, we want to hear from you on any relevant topic.

So, if you're a student that wants to add to this site, feel free to e-mail us at makowsky@stanford.edu or steina@stanford.edu. We'll get back to you within the day.

Of course, we welcome all comments on our content as well. If you agree or disagree with what someone posts, please don't hold back!

Here's a quick video introduction of ourselves and the site. After you watch it, scroll down for all of the content The Richardson Campus has to offer.

On LGBT rights...

At the forefront of the national debate are rights for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities. It is a divisive issue, but there really should be no discussion: homosexuals should have the same rights as their heterosexual counterparts. In the same way that equality was granted to women in 1919 and to minorities in 1964, there must be gay civil rights legislation in the near future. It starts with more anti-hate crime laws, and continues on with accepted domestic partnerships. Bill Richardson has taken point on LGBT issues, as he has helped passed significant gay rights legislation in New Mexico. As president, he would go even further.

In this new video, Wyndam and Mike (a special guest host) discuss gay rights and Bill Richardson's work--and promise of further work--on them.

EDIT: A new article on Bill Richardson's stance on LGBT issues by the Washington Blade hit news stands today (Friday). Check it out!
