Richardson Still Interviewing in Ads

Former Gov Bill Richardson (D-NM) has launched his third humorous ad in the "job interview" series. In two earlier ads, he sat for a job interview to be President -- being told he was overqualified. In the third one he's asked what he did as governor to fight global climate change.

The meat of the ad:

Richardson :"We passed tax credits for wind, solar and bio fuels,' Richardson says. 'Utility companies have to use renewable sources. And I set tough standards to reduce greenhouse emissions. President Bush doesn't follow the Kyoto Treaty, but my state does. I can do all that as president.'

Interviewer: "But what I asked you was if you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?"

The humorous ads seem to be helping. AP reports his poll numbers have ticked up some since they started airing -- but not enough to get him into the top tier. (Utica Observer Dispatch)
