The article reports that for New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, it took a baseball game to help him figure out how to get kids involved in politics. Richardson served for 15 years as representative for New Mexico 3rd Congressional District before becoming the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and then Secretary of Energy under former U.S. President Bill Clinton administration. But ultimately he decided that it was as governor of his native New Mexico that he could have a serious influence on kids lives. Richardson has put kids in the cabinet, giving them a real voice in policy decisions.
