Obama Nominates a Republican for Commerce Secretary


The nominee, Judd Gregg, is a Republican senator from New Hampshire.  New Hampshire’s governor is a democrat and would appoint his replacement to the senate. It was speculated at first that this was a shrewd move by Obama to get that coveted 60th Democrat in the senate to overcome GOP filibusters, but supposedly Gregg has said he wouldn’t take the spot unless the governor agreed to appoint another Republican.
