Bill Richardson had a couple of good comebacks for the Clinton campaign:
Barack Obama supporter Gov. Bill Richardson, D-New Mexico, responded on Sunday to controversial comments by James Carville, saying that he would not “stoop to Carville’s level.”Carville, a Hillary Clinton supporter and former strategist for her husband’s 1992 presidential campaign, compared Richardson to the Biblical figure Judas in an interview with the New York Times last week. When later asked whether his comment was accurate, Carville made no attempt to apologize, saying that it had “the desired effect.”
“I haven’t gotten into the gutter on this. And you know, I’m not going to stoop to Carville’s level. I barely know the guy in the first place,” Richardson told Bob Scheiffer on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
Carville reminds me a little of Floyd in my comic strip. You haven’t met him yet, but I describe him here.
And about that whole question of loyalty:
“I think loyalty to the nation, loyalty to the party is a lot more important than personal loyalty,” he said. “I owe the Clintons a lot. I served in the president’s cabinet. That loyalty is to President Clinton. That doesn’t mean that I’m going to for the rest of my life be in lockstep with whatever they do.“
What? No loyalty oath? Who do you think you are, a Democrat?
