Okay, so Bill Clinton hired Bill Richardson for his cabinet back in the day. That apparently means that Bill C can tell Bill R how to vote, at the risk of Bill R being deemed a Judas.
First question: How long is this in effect? Do the Clinton's still have final say in the 2020 election? And can Richardson speed this up? Say he returns his Secretary of Energy salary, is he his own man again now?
Also, why is it a betrayal for Richardson to endorse Obama, but not for him to run for President himself? My understanding was that he was at least tacitly endorsing himself for the nomination back then. Or is that too subtle?
