Former Gov. Bill Richardson says it’s his fault that his relationship with former President Bill Clinton is broken beyond repair.

Richardson made his remarks about his former benefactor in an interview on CBS to promote his latest book, How to Sweet-Talk a Shark: Strategies and Stories from a Master Negotiator, released this week.

    I'm not an expert on Bill Richardson but I did get 100s of thousands of hits on a blog site "Fat Bill and Me" that I wrote mostly about him.
    Richardson plays in the big leagues. His rift with Hillary was about a split in the CIA and intelligence community more than a Democratic political divide.
    Personally I think Hillary's rabid pro-Israel stance was going to get the world blown-up. I think there was an attempt on her life when they said she got the flu and fell and hit her head. I think this book is about the "Good CIA" reaching out to the "Bad CIA."

    But if anyone wants to look at some flattering and not-so-flattering images of Richardson - http://fatbillandme.blogspot.com/2007/12/more-bill-richardson-images-governor.html

    "Bill Richardson is a successful interesting man that couldn't care less about you, your avatar or your bitter feeling."

    Bill Richardson has certainly enjoyed success, although success that relies upon seemingly underhanded dealings isn't really something I admire.

    I agree that Bill Richardson doesn't care about me, or any of the rest of us here in New Mexico, except when he needs our donations or votes.

    On the the contrary, I'm a firm believer in canine suffrage. I just think that your choice of "avatar" reflects who you are as much as your choice of words. I may not be anti-dog as much as anti-you. Your statements about issues or articles have a Pavlovian predictability and four-legged wit. Bill Richardson is a successful interesting man that couldn't care less about you, your avatar or your bitter feeling. I'm not going buy his book but I might try to steal one at his book signing.

    Gosh, I'd love to read this piece of fiction and self back-patting ... but ... I wouldn't spend a penny toward this guy. I think he needs to recognize the limelight is unbecoming to him and just ride his precious railrunner into the sunset.

    Wow, you really are anti-dog, aren't you? I don't see how the picture I choose to use as my web avatar has anything to do with the fact that Bill Richardson now has to stoop to reminding us that he used to pal around with people much more powerful and important than him just to stay in the limelight. Poor old Bill has nothing left to offer but namedropping.

    Obviously a novice when it comes to politics! If this is anything like his other book 'Leading by Example" save your money! Richardson is one of the blemishes in NM politics. There is a way to support Obama yet not advertise it and remain loyal to the one that put you on the map. Richardson lost any amount of credibility he had with Democrats, New Mexicans and from some of those who worked for him. He has been reduced to begging for CNN appearances and authoring wanna-be best sellers! Get over it Bill, get on your horse and ride into the sunset!

    People who pose as dogs shouldn't tell other people what's cool.

    News Flash!: Bill Richardson was once popular with the cool kids, but then he wasn't.

    Hmm ... Whitewater, Lewinsky ... Yeah, real examples of high integrity. Bin Laden prospered because Sleazy Bill was defending his affair and let Al Qaida fly under the radar.

    Excuse me. Cheeseburger Bill. Seriously? You liked a guy who had absolutely no integrity whatsoever? Who was only in it for himself and his friends? Oh, and by the way, I am non-hispanic. Why did you have to bring race in to this?

    When comparing sleaze to sleaze, womanizer to womanizer, liar to liar, I think it's a dead heat.

    Bill Richardson is a pretty low-integrity person and a has been. Bill Clinton is better off without him.

    There is far more conflict than that in this relationship. Bill Richardson, as secretary of Energy under Clinton, badly mangled the Wen Ho Lee affair. As detailed in the book "A Convenient Spy," Richardson may well have broken the law in his zeal to avoid public embarrassment. At the end of the affair, Clinton publicly distanced himself from the members of his administration who mismanaged the situation so badly.

    If someone w/ a non-Hispanic name had called him "Burrito Bill," would you have been offended? I've liked Bill Richardson for some time. He was the only Dem I would've supported for the presidency. This story just shows that Bill Clinton can be petty and childish. Also, Richardson has gone around the world and saved several lives. In contrast, Hillary helped murder the Benghazi Four and probably Vince Foster.

    Get a clue, Burrito Bill. The Cliinton's don't need you. They are way above and beyond anything you'll ever be.
