Commerce Sec a Republican?
It looks like Obama is appointing Rep.Sen. Gregg from N.H. What do yuou think?
1. Is it a bold bi-partisan move by a strong leader? (Come on I am still a dem, you know, had to put this first.)
2. Is it a peace offering to the Rep Senate after the bailout bill? Or maybe for their votes on the bill?
3. Is it a master stroke by Obama in removing a sitting Rep. Senator and expecting the Democratic N.H. Gov appoints a Democratic/Independent Senator who allies with the Dems? Helping to give them a 60 seat majority.
4. Provide some smart expertise to the suddenly important Commerce Dept.? Gregg is a smart guy and if you really need the best minds....
I know that a lot of you all will torch Gregg for 'deserting' the party but what was your thoughts on him before the announcement.
