New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson today drew a sharp distinction between his views on the war in Iraq and the views of the other major candidates running for the 2008 Democratic Presidential nomination. Governor Richardson addressed the Take Back America Conference in Washington, DC, and clearly showed why his plan to end the Iraq is bold and the best course of action.

"I applaud my fellow Democratic candidates for taking on President Bush in the Congress," said Governor Richardson."But there is a fundamental difference in this campaign -- and that's how many troops each of us would leave behind. I would leave zero troops. Not a single one."

Governor Richardson reiterated his call for Congress to use its constitutional authority to de-authorize the war and bring all American troops home by the end of this calendar year.
