The Curse Of Obama's Cabinet Goes On
Sen. Judd Gregg has decided he can't get along with the Obama administration and has withdrawn his nomination for Secretary of Commerce. (At least, that's what he says the reason is.)
President Obama’s choice for Commerce Secretary, Senator Judd Gregg, withdrew his nomination on Thursday. He said there were “irresolvable conflicts” between him and the administration. “It has become apparent during this process that this will not work for me as I have found that on issues such as the stimulus package and the Census, there are irresolvable conflicts for me,” Mr. Gregg said in a statement. “Prior to accepting this post, we had discussed these and other potential differences, but unfortunately we did not adequately focus on these concerns. We are functioning from a different set of views on many critical items of policy.”I guess this undoes the deal to replace Gregg in the Senate.
