What A Salsa Can Tell You About A Potential Presidential Candidate


So the other night I was making these burritos when I discovered that the salsa jar in my refrigerator was almost empty. I scoured our pantry for some more, and the only jar I could find was a bottle of the "Governor Bill Richardson" salsa that was given out to delegates (and, when there were leftovers, journos) at the 2004 Democratic convention. I was skeptical, but I didn't feel like running out to the market, so I gave it a try. You know what? It was pretty good. Most notably, it was hot! I don't know if Richardson is going to run for president, but you've got to admire the guy for being unafraid to offend delicate taste buds. Can you imagine how mild a Kerry or a Hillary salsa would be?
