It hasn’t yet been made public, but I believe that Governor Bill Richardson may be working on setting a new record for the Guinness Book of World Records. Richardson has already been widely recognized for his record breaking handshaking. Now, he diligently working on setting the record for the most retractions made by a candidate during a Presidential campaign (subscription):
Democratic presidential hopeful Bill Richardson said today that his comment about it being God’s will that Iowa votes first was off-the-cuff as he defended the state’s primacy in the nomination process.
Campaigning in south-central Iowa, the New Mexico governor faced questions about his comment Monday in which he suggested that there was a more serious reason for Iowa to lead the nomination process with caucuses.
“Iowa, for good reason, for constitutional reasons, for reasons related to the Lord, should be the first caucus and primary,” he said Monday.
Governor Richardson’s campaign trail gaffes seem to be occurring with greater and greater frequency, which can only mean that he is very serious about securing this place in the record books.
