Whoops. There We Go Again



From the New York Times this morning.

"WASHINGTON — Senator Judd Gregg of New Hampshire abruptly withdrew Thursday as the nominee for commerce secretary, saying he had "irresolvable conflicts" with President Obama over his economic stimulus plan and a concern over what many fellow Republicans believe is the politicization of the 2010 census."

I think it is a test of sanity. No one in their right mind would ever want to work in Washington D.C. but even worse is to be on the President's Cabinet.

My hat's off to Senator Gregg and his decision to withdraw his name from consideration for Commerce Secretary. I am not sure that I agree with his rationale but I am sure that he had an epiphany (Epiphany: the sudden realization or comprehension of the essence or meaning of something) early one morning recently and woke up in a cold sweat about telling President Obama that he agreed to be his Commerce Secretary.

The President is once again looking for a Commerce Secretary and continues to search for a Health and Human Services Secretary.

I wonder if President Obama suddenly feels like General George Custer at the Little Big Horn and wants to know where everyone went all of a sudden. g
