This doesn't really change my view of Bill Richardson, though. I haven't decided who to vote for in the Democratic primary. He didn't take sides in this for 4 years, and now he's using it as a political ploy. So he's just another politician, and this doesn't win any brownie points. I don't hate him, but I don't love him either.<br><br><br><br>

Considering how strongly he opposed a ban on cockfighting it's obvious he's doing this now because of his hopes to become president. It's great that this will finally end it but I still won't vote for him either.

I doubt cockfighting would make or break a presidential campaign anyway. Very few people will say "I'm not voting for him because he comes from a state that allows cockfighting."

I don't know anything about him ... but he seems to be a douchebag who wants to be president and is only passing the bill for personal gain [that he apparently isn't getting anyway].

I don't care if it's political or not. It's great news for the roosters! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:">

I wouldn't overemphasize Richardson's role in this. We've been trying to ban cockfighting in this state for decades. Each time it comes up, we make some headway. This year it finally got enough support to pass.

I think anyone who gets entertainment out of watching chicken battles really needs a life. Wow.
