Summary note
Bill Richardson, the governor of New Mexico, may be the most charismatic figure in the Democratic Party today, and one of its best natural politicians whose name isn't Clinton. He has been nominated four times for the Nobel Peace Prize. His background as the son of an American businessman father and a Mexican mother has offered him an unusual starting point from which to seek a life in public service, but one of his most interesting roles has been that of global troubleshooter. Through his work as a negotiator--as well as his toil on Capitol Hill, in the United Nations, and New Mexico's state government--he has learned the vital importance of preparation: know as much as possible about your adversary; test your partner's truthfulness; know how much you can concede; never lie and always be direct.--From publisher description.
