Overview

Bill Richardson by Liz Rice

Bill Richardson has been a congressman, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, secretary of energy, governor of New Mexico-and a candidate for president of the United States. He is a skilled speaker who has put his talents to work for more than 30 years in politics and public service.

Richardson grew up in two worlds-in both Mexico and the United States. His early experiences in bridging cultures have made him an effective diplomat and negotiator, even with dictators. The popular politician points to his Hispanic heritage and the values of his Mexican-American upbringing as the reason for his ability to connect with others-and get things done.
