Judd Gregg to Commerce?
Blue Hampshire has the story that Barack Obama might tap Senator Judd Gregg (R-NH) as his Secretary of Commerce, the one remaining Cabinet vacancy. If this happens, our Governor, John Lynch (D), would pick Gregg's replacement. It sounds pretty legit: Gregg answered a question about Commerce, "I am not at liberty to discuss that," and his staffers are "under a hard no comment" rule.
I hope this for real - it would mean 60 Democratic senators (Maybe Governor Lynch would appoint Steve Marchand? That'd be cool - and wow, what a fast way for Jeanne Shaheen to become the senior senator.) and a third Republican in the Cabinet. Yay NH politics, yay serious cooperative bipartisanship, yay Democratic senators, yay the second and third yays on my list conflicting with one another.
H/T my friend Kaili.
