Senator Gregg more confused than Bud Selig's conscience

Well, that didn't take long.

Less than a week after accepting the Commerce post, Senator Judd Gregg withdrew his name from nomination, ostensibly because he disagreed with Obama's stimulus package.

I'm all for standing on principle and whatnot, but come on Senator: you just realized Obama had a $800 billion spending package? Have you been vacationing on Mars the past two months?  Seems weird that he'd have second thoughts after lobbying the White House for the position, but oh well.

I'm sure Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell is happy.  Gregg was -- and is -- an effective Senator, and the Republicans need all the strong voices they can find.  Having him the chamber is probably a good thing (if you're a Republican).

One thing is for certain: Obama won't be offering the position to another Republican.  Yea, not so much.

*I'm assuming Bud Selig's conscience is confused (am I partly to blame for the steroid problem, or do I throw the players under the bus?), but I have no evidence for it.  I also have no evidence that the A-Team was really behind the Watergate break-in, but it hasn't stopped me from spreading that theory around.
