Bill Richardson
He's been a House member, a Cabinet secretary, and a UN ambassador, in addition to his current post as governor of New Mexico. Now, Bill Richardson is hoping his deep resume and personal touch will help him win the ultimate promotion. Born November 15, 1947 in California, Richardson spent his childhood in Mexico City. Running to become the country's first Hispanic president, the border state governor often speaks of his strong bond with both Mexico and the United States. A local high school baseball star, Richardson was offered a minor-league contract by the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, but chose college at his father's insistence. Richardson received his Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Tufts University. Elected to the House of Representatives in 1982, Richardson served for 14 years in Congress before joining the Clinton administration as ambassador to the United Nations. He currently serves as governor of New Mexico.
