“Soon, I’m going to announce that I’m thinking about possibly announcing. Maybe. I’m just keeping my options open.”

Rumor's getting around that Richardson announced his candidacy for presidency this afternoon. Don't believe everything you hear (or read). According to a New York Times story filed early this evening, Richardson will announce this Sunday, Jan. 21, that he will "soon file the papers to create a presidential exploratory committee." Note that this doesn't mean he's going to formally enter the race, only that he's going to start raising money and putting together a campaign organization. We'll have to wait a couple more months to know any more.

In the meantime, Happy Weekend.
