With New Hampshire Senator Judd Gregg's nomination today, President Obama has matched Teddy Roosevelt for the most bipartisan cabinet in American history.

MSNBC:

President Barack Obama has nominated Republican Sen. Judd Gregg to be Commerce secretary.

Obama announced the nomination at the White House.

If confirmed, Gregg would be the third Republican in the Democrat's Cabinet, joining Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.

It was the last open spot in the senior ranks of the Obama administration.
