Hillary makes it official

She obviously got nervous with all the others stealing the limelight. So now it is a crowded field indeed. It should be an interesting primary.

Hillary is a formidable candidate. The question is will voters let her get away with repositioning herself as a centrist? She has done a good job of recreating herself as a U.S. Senator, but to do that she only had to get a wink and nod from NY voters. Will the broader body politic buy it?

Especially if she wins the nomination and chooses Richardson as VP. That is a solid ticket. Richardson has legitimate broad appeal, and a fabulous resume. He actually reduced taxes in New Mexico.

Obama, Edwards, Hillary, Richardson - this will be far more interesting than the Republican race.
