Obama’s second choice for Commerce Secretary withdrew his name today. I wrote a while ago about why Gregg, as an easy confirmation, would be a blessing for Obama. I guess not…

Matt Cooper tells us why he withdrew. David Rogers has Gregg’s quotes:

“The fault lies with me,” Gregg said, refusing to discuss any conversations he has had with Obama himself. Asked if he felt the decision would be an embarrassment for the president, Gregg said, “I may have embarrassed myself but hopefully not him.”
