Bill Richardson: Political Chameleon

It looks like New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson is going to be tapped as President-elect Obama's commerce secretary. This is only the latest in a long line of completely unrelated jobs that Richardson has held in government.

The New Mexico Democrat has been Secretary of Energy, U.N. Ambassador, a member of the House, a presidential aspirant, is currently a governor, and soon, apparently, Secretary of Commerce. An impressive list, but it's a bit unfocused for my taste and it begs the question: Is Richardson actually skilled at anything other than holding jobs in government?
