Gregg last week:
"We need a robust one," he added. "I think the one that's pending is in the range we need. I do believe it's a good idea to do it at two levels, which this bill basically does, which is immediate stimulus and long-term initiatives which actually improve our competitiveness and our productivity."
Republican Sen. Judd Gregg is putting a final exclamation point on his withdrawal as Barack Obama's designee for Commerce Secretary with a promise to vote against the president's economic stimulus package.
Gregg's office confirmed the decision Friday.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say maybe Gregg's departure was not much of a loss to the Obama administration.
