He's a good guy, but didn't have a chance. So will he throw his supporters over to Obama? Hey, the woman who made Hillary cry supports him.

He's a good guy, but didn't have a chance. So will he throw his supporters over to Obama?

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson ended his campaign for the presidency Wednesday after twin fourth-place finishes that showed his impressive credentials could not compete with his rivals' star power.

So much for one experienced candidate.

****

Remember that voter who made Hillary cry? She voted for Obama.

Irony, thy name is Marianne Pernold-Young:

Many political observers are crediting Democrat Hillary Clinton's surprise win in New Hampshire to the New York senator's rare display of emotion at a Portsmouth Coffee shop Monday morning.

But Clinton's tearful moment failed to win at least one Granite State voter -- the very woman who prompted her response in the first place.

Why, that's preposterous! That's nonsensical! That's...true.

Marianne Pernold-Young told CNN Wednesday she ultimately picked Barack Obama in Tuesday night's primary because of the Illinois senator's performance at a recent rally she attended.

"I was moved to tears. Not once, but twice," she said. "And he has this enormous electricity. And I was just taken aback. And I just had to go with my feelings."
