In a comment at The Hill sometime ago, I said that if Judd Gregg turned down the cabinet appointment, to be a minority-party senator under insane leadership (who seem to be repeating Newt Gingrich’s downfall), then he is a putz. And he is.
I wish him luck.
Of course this sort of thing was bound to happen, and, no matter which side is exerting power, it is the Republicans who will scream loudest and get the most media attention. You can’t just go and wish that changed.
