Ever wanted to meet a presidential candidate in person? Well, this week, New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson gives you that chance in his You Choose '08 Spotlight video. Submit your video response to the Governor's call-out for energy conservation ideas, and you may just get a direct visit from the man himself.

Richardson became the Governor of New Mexico in 2002 and claims that he broke the world record for handshakes that same year at the New Mexico State Fair. He's focused heavily on economic issues in his home state and has worked on global issues as well, traveling to both North Korea and Sudan in recent years to negotiate with leaders there.
