You wonder if James Carville is psychic, or had inside information, when he predicted there would be more Democratic corruption charges.

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson on Sunday announced that he was withdrawing his nomination to be President-elect Barack Obama’s commerce secretary amid a grand jury investigation into how some of his political donors won a lucrative state contract.

A federal grand jury is investigating how a California company that contributed to Richardson’s political activities won a New Mexico transportation contract worth more than $1 million. Richardson said in a statement issued by the Obama transition office that the investigation could take weeks or months but expressed confidence it will show he and his administration acted properly.

So, wanna guess who will be involved in the next corruption/legal case?  Come on, lets take bets.  Who would have thought that Eliot Spitzer, Rod Blagojevich, and Bill Richardson would all go down in flames in just a few months.
