Richardson Said Obama Can't Win

Hillary Clinton is insisting to Democratic superdelegates that her presidential rival Barack Obama can’t defeat presumptive Republican nominee John McCain in the general election.

Ironically, that is exactly what New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson reportedly told Hillary and Bill Clinton — before he endorsed Obama.

Sources disclosed to ABC News that Hillary told Richardson prior to his endorsement: “He cannot win, Bill. He cannot win.”

But one source with direct knowledge of Richardson’s conversations with the Clintons earlier this year, when he was telling them he wouldn’t endorse Obama, told ABC News that Richardson “didn’t think Obama could win” and said about the candidate: “Too inexperienced.”

A Clinton associate told Time magazine: “Bill Richardson is clearly embarrassed that he broke his promise to [the Clintons]. He should come out and tell the truth and admit that he had told both Clintons that Obama wasn’t ready and can’t win.”
