A Man Who Knows About Monarchies

Governor Bill Richardson and Clinton strategist James Carville appear to have had an entertaining little debate on Larry King. This is by far my favorite part of the exchange (subscription):

Richardson told King that he believes Clinton was too negative during her quest to win Pennsylvania.

There’s a sense of “clinging to the throne,” Richardson said, clearly referring to the Clinton camp. “You know, we’re America, we’re not Monaco.”

This coming from a man who has made a habit of tossing aside the New Mexico Constitution when it suits his needs. I hope during the next legislative session our legislators take time to remind the Governor that “You know, we’re America, we’re not Monaco.” After all, they don’t call him King Bill for nothing.
