Bill Richardson: CWATCF Primary Dropouts Guide

In a year littered with 2-loss teams aspiring to college football's throne, it's only appropriate that the Presidential primary field is filled with flawed pretenders.

In an attempt to make this approachable for you blog-reading Neanderthals, we give you
The CWATCF Primary Voter's Guide, comparing each wannabe-Reagan to one of this season's college football teams.

Go here for links to all of the candidates.

Bill Richardson, Texas Longhorns

Despite a record far outstripping any of the other candidates (Secretary of Energy, Governor of Arizona, Congressman, Ambassador to the U.N., consultant at Kissinger Associates, former minor league baseball player), it quickly became apparent that Richardson was completely out of his league.

Likewise, UT’s early victories got them a pretty ranking, but quite a few people noticed the narrow escapes at Rice and UCF. The loss to K-State, like Richardson's humiliating defeat in Iowa, caused the respective parties to crater in the polls. Still, both Richardson and the Longhorns somehow managed to keep this from becoming embarrassing -- a 10-3 record with a #10 ranking at least looks respectable, as does the Governor's 4th place showing in a stacked Democratic field.

The future? Well, Richardson's endorsement will carry some weight in the western states, and it’s not unlikely that he’ll be considered for the VP slot (biiiiiiiiiig mistake) or a hefty cabinet position. Likewise, the Longhorns have big things in front of them, and a Big 12 title isn’t out of reach in 2008.

Oh, don't forget they lost to the Aggies (how many years in a row is that now?).
