     Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico endorsed Sen. Barack Obama in the Democratic race for president today.

      "Barack Obama will make a great and historic president," Richardson told a rally in Portland, Oregon, with Obama standing at his side.

      Richardson said Obama’s recent speech on race in America, saying he "understands clearly that only by bringing people together, only by bridging our differences can we all succeed together as Americans."

      "He appealed to the best in us … as a Hispanic American I was particularly touched by his words," Richardson added.

      Richardson, who served as United Nations ambassador and energy secretary in the Clinton administration, dropped out of the race for the Democratic nomination on January 10.
