Bill Clinton Still Not Speaking To Bill Richardson

CBS' Bob Schieffer, talking about the historic nature of this Democrat National Convention to African-Americans on the Imus in the Morning Show, relayed an interesting tidbit about Bill Richardson and Bill Clinton. You will recall that Bill Clinton -- via surrogate James Carville -- let his feelings be known about Bill Richardson's endorsement of Barack Obama as well as his releasing his Iowa delegates to Obama, helping fuel his upset victory in the Hawkeye State over Clinton and John Edwards. The Clintonites viewed it as a betrayal of Biblical lengths, as Bill himself had been lobbying hard to get the New Mexico Governor's imprimatur.

Richardson's speech was cut from last night's Convention broadcast. Schieffer, who saw him last night said the Governor told him that he and Senator Clinton are "fine." Richardson recently hosted a fundraiser for Hillary to retire her campaign debt. But Bill Clinton, Richardson says, still won't speak to him.
