What A Fool
Tell me, what exactly makes New Hampshire GOP senator Judd Gregg so essential for the Commerce Secretary position that Barack Obama would agree to not backfill him with a Democrat?
Is Gregg the only person in the United States who can do this job? Does his selection guarantee 20-25 GOP votes in the Senate for Obama's agenda? Is he so much better than any Democrat? Is he even better than Susan Collins or Olympia Snowe for the job?
Of course the answer to all of these questions is "no". And yet in Obama's quest for a bipartisanship that doesn't exist, he is doing this. And to think it was necessary to throw Bill Richardson under the bus.
Now, please, tell me again about Obama's judgment.
