Bill Richardson Reveals All, Including His Face

With a lucky bit of timing, a new issue of Esquire hits newsstands next week with bits of wisdom and trivia from your newly beardless Commerce Secretary-designate Bill Richardson. ("A mistake," the president-elect said yesterday. "That whole Western rugged look was really working for him.") Some excerpts:

  • "I named my horse after Toby Keith because I really like the guy. Genuine -- that's Toby Keith."

  • "My mother used to insist that I go to confession almost every day when I was a kid. I'd say, 'This is absurd! Let's do it every three days. Give me time to sin!'."

  • "As I'm chatting with Obama, the [debate] moderator says, 'Governor Richardson, what do you think of that?' And I look at him like a deer in the headlights. I was about to say that I hadn't heard, when Obama puts his hand over his mouth and says, 'Katrina.' ... It confirmed to me that this guy was something special."

  • "Every elegant man should have a nice fountain pen and a nice watch."

    !Soy Bill esta muy macho! Actually, Bill Richardson is a good guy, and should do quite well in his new Job. However, we're glad to send him to Washington, so we here in New Mexico can have Dianne Denish as our first Woman Governor. We're very excited about that.

    I understand the political reality that made Obama choose Clinton for State, but I honestly think Richardson would have been better. He's certainly more deserving. And any man who loves fountain pens is okay by me. You shall know them by the blotches on their fingers...
