The New York Times covered the YearlyKos 2006 Convention in Las Vegas Friday. Here's what Adam Nagourney had to say about our governor.

"I see you guys as agents of advocacy — that's why I'm here," said Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico, a Democrat and a prospective 2008 presidential candidate, who flew here at the last minute ... Bloggers, Mr. Richardson said later, "are a major voice in American politics."

Mr. Richardson's visit was interesting in that he decided to come so late that his name did not appear on any programs; a hand-lettered sign announced a breakfast with him on Friday morning. Still, Mr. Richardson arched an eyebrow when asked whether he had suddenly decided to fly in after learning that many of his prospective rivals for 2008 were here and that Mr. Warner, in particular, was giving a major address on Saturday.

"Warner?" Mr. Richardson responded with a hint of a smile. "Is he here?"

In addition to Richardson and Warner, other possible 2008 candidates at the confab were retired Gen. Wesley Clark and Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack. Sen. Hillary Clinton declined an invitation.

    I saw that at TheSkyHorseCompany com. It is pretty entertaining. I think it is going to be a close fight especially with all the early Gore navel gazing, Hillary wishing, and who knows what Obama might do?
