Will President Obama nominate Republican Sen. Judd Gregg to be secretary of the Commerce Department, thereby leaving Republicans without a respected leader on financial issues in the Senate? Worse for the GOP, if Gregg is tapped, his replacement would probably be a Democrat, which would hand Obama a 60-seat majority. "I am aware that my name is one of those being considered by the White House for Secretary of Commerce, and am honored to be considered, along with others, for the position," Gregg said in a statement this morning. At this point it's unclear how likely it is that Obama would pick Gregg. Stay tuned.
