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.

Why can't we focus on the issues?

CBS News is starting a series of interviews called "Primary Questions," where Evening News anchor Katie Couric will ask the top 10 candidates in the race the same 10 questions in an attempt to delve deep into each candidate's character.

Couric and CBS have a fantastic opportunity to ask the candidates questions that really matter ("How would you disarm Iran? Would you?"). But in the commercials for this series, what is the one tough question CBS promotes?

"When was the last time you lost your temper?"

Thanks CBS for that striking and in depth commentary! With this valuable knowledge in hand, I'll know I made the right decision when I head to the polls!

I couldn't agree more. And this is exactly the point Richardson has been making in the past few weeks: how we need to rise above partisan bickering, pandering and frivolousness and focus on the issues that are truly going to shape this election. I wouldn't be surprised if he grumbled to himself as he accepted the interview, since to turn it down would just shoot him in the foot.
