Bill Richardson: The Leader in Pledged Delegates After March 4th Should Be Democratic Nominee [VIDEO]

Former Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson, tirelessly courted for his endorsement by both Hillary and Obama, made some interesting comments on Face the Nation this past weekend. He said it would be best for the Democratic Party to reduce the number of superdelegates in future elections, that voters in the primaries should have more clout. But most importantly he says whoever has the most delegates after tonight, that's pledged delegates, should be the Democratic nominee. That may not have been an outright endorsement of Obama, but barring a shocking across the board landslide victory by Hillary, it appears he will still maintain a commanding delegate lead after tonight. Personally, I'm totally over this race and I'm eager to get ready for the onslaught of negative press and McCain fearmongering which is right around the corner.
