Denish Distances Herself?

Well, Lt. Gov Diane Denish decided to issue an after-hours official statement in reaction to "News Reports Clearing Governor Richardson and Staff" and boy, is it anything but celebratory.
Assuming news reports are accurate this is good news for the people of New Mexico.  But the fact remains that public confidence has been eroded by the numerous investigations into possible wrongdoings by other government officials.  We need strong ethics reform to make state government more open and accountable and I will continue to lead that fight.

Is it just me or does that response seem a) skeptical that Richardson's in the clear, b) resentful that Richardson's appearance of wrongdoing screwed up her plans earlier this year and c) an indication that she won't be asking Richardson to stump for her?
