Richardson's second place votes go to Obama

In a surprise move, NM Governor Bill Richardson has told his supporters to vote for IL Senator Barack Obama if they cannot vote for him. This is interesting because many pundits viewed Richardson as angling for the #2 spot with NY Senator Hillary Clinton, as Richardson served as UN Ambassador and Energy Secretary in Bill Clinton's cabinet, and Richardson has mostly refrained from criticizing Hillary Clinton.

Richardson has significant support in Iowa, and so his 2nd place votes may really put Obama over the top.
