Is Richardson the new Anthony Williams?

Here at the School of Blog, we have a particular penchant for Bill Richardson, who we think would make a good presidential candidate in 08. But lately we just don't know what to think about the guy ... cracking down on undocumented immigrants? And now, the face of vouchers in the New York Post??

Okay, well you can't see it in the online version, but in the print version of today's NY Post, Richardson's headshot accompanies an opinion piece on Democrats backing school choice. It refers to his pre-K initiative in New Mexico, which the piece calls a "voucher program."

Now, I don't have the time or the knowledge to go too far into it right now, but Richardson's program sounds to me much less like Cleveland-style vouchers and more like Head Start.

But that aside, is it a good thing or a bad thing that two conservative opinionmakers have made Richardson out to be a conservative Democrat?
