The best transition ever takes another hit.
According to a breaking news alert from MSNBC, Judd Gregg has withdrawn from his nomination as Commerce Secretary. If so, this makes the third Cabinet appointment from Barack Obama to fail, and the second one at Commerce. Tom Daschle withdrew at HHS over his tax evasion, and Bill Richardson preceded Gregg as Commerce Secretary-designate before withdrawing over a pay-for-play corruption scandal in New Mexico.
I guess some people are surprised that a politician who has spent his "career" advancing himself from one job to another is being made to look like an incompetent amateur now that he actually has to work for a living.
The stick that broke the camel's back, so to speak, seems to have been the White House's naked ploy to use the Census for political gain.
So on yet another front- all that hope'n'change- Obama scores a massive FAIL.
