Richardson announced today

… the formation of a Presidential campaign exploratory committee, with the clear intention of seeking the Democratic nomination for President in 2008.

While his official campaign site does have a Blog section, it is one that doesn’t let you subscribe to any RSS feeds.  Note also, that the announcement itself seems to not have been worth a blog entry.  On the other hand, folks are being offered to “Join our grassroots campaign online and connect with supporters in your neighborhood and across the country.” (the Richardson campaign is present on MySpace, PartyBuilder, Facebook, YouTube, Zanby, and Flickr).
