Bill Richardson's Last Stand

What do you do when you've lost it all? Bill Richardson, who resigned from his position as Obama's commerce secretary in January, still isn't sure. He's back to his old post as governor of New Mexico, but he's little more than a lame duck now, stuck in "virtual exile" with low approval ratings. But in his first interview since withdrawling from the cabinet, Richardson insists he's still on top: "I don't miss it one bit. I really don't. I wish them well... This is hard convincing people because they know me, but I've found the ultimate job in being governor. I really have."
