for most cabinet appointees dropping out of consideration?
Cause Gregg just flew the coop
So much for that record breaking bi-partisan cabinet.
In a statement released Thursday afternoon, Gregg said he has “found that on issues such as the stimulus package and the Census there are irresolvable conflicts for me.”

shame on him for throwing away an opportunity to show bipatisan and to change what he doesn't like. I'm sure that his beliefs didn't change overnight, but rather that he gave in to pressure from other republicans.

Anon that didn't even make sense. He was nominated. THEN saw how NOT bi partisan President Obama was being on those 2 issues and so decided that the principles he has had ALL ALONG wouldn't be considered by this administration and so dropped out. No repub pressure, just good old fashioned ethics. Difficult word to comprehend with all the recent nominees (and appointees) behaviors!
