On CBSâ€™ â€œFace the Nation,â€ New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson gave a better idea of his decision-making process before endorsing Barack Obama. He said he was on the verge of endorsing Hillary Clinton â€œa couple of timesâ€ but backed off. He was in â€œintensive contactâ€ with Obama, who called Richardson himself, but the â€œClinton people would, like a war room, get hundreds of their supporters and colleagues of mine to call me and pressure me in a way that, in some cases, I felt was inappropriate.â€ Richardson also said the Clinton supporters act as if â€œthe presidency is theirs,â€ and â€œI think loyalty to the nation, loyalty to the party, is a lot more important than personal loyalty.â€
