No Carville Apology For Judas Remark To Richardson

James Carville is refusing to apologize for comparing New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson to Judas for endorsing Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton. But Richardson is refusing to strike back

Carville is an adviser to Clinton's campaign. He made the comparison to The New York Times, calling Richardson's decision an "act of betrayal" that came around Holy Week. He said the timing of his remark seemed appropriate since Richardson's endorsement of Obama over Clinton for the Democratic nomination came around the anniversary of Judas selling out Jesus for 30 pieces of silver.

Richardson served as ambassador to the United Nations and energy secretary during the Clinton administration.

Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," Richardson said he wouldn't respond by getting "in the gutter like that."

Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson said today he didn't agree with Carville's comment.
