Isn’t Richardson the manliest of the Democratic candidates, with his guns and his sports? Unfortunately, he doesn’t look athletic and, in any case, Democrats seem to be immune to such red state attractions. At least not until after they’ve chosen their candidate.

Richardson is polling way ahead of other Democrats among InstaPundit readers. As I’ve mentioned before, I like his positions on space, too. Interestingly, Kos likes Richardson. That may not be surprising, as he’s been happy to back Democrats who look like they might win Red State votes — e.g., James Webb.
