Senator Judd Gregg being considered to be Secretary of Commerce

According to CNN and other sources, Sen. Gregg(R-NH) is being considered by the Administration to be nominated for Secretary of Commerce— and by most measures; Sen. Gregg is considered a moderate republican. Of course you just need to look at his constituency to understand why this is so.

Anyway, now you ask: what's the big deal about this, since we all know that President Obama is trying to project bipartisanship in his administration?

Well, if Sen. Gregg becomes Secretary of Commerce, then that leaves the governor of N.H. (Democrat) to appoint the next senator to his state. And counting on that Al Franken ends his Senate saga in Minnesota victorious, that would mean, guess how many democrats in the senate?

Bingo! 60! We all know what marvelous things this magic # does in the U.S. senate.

Now, don’t assume that I don’t like this nor assume that I’m all for it. In my humble opinion, in any given political system the balance of power is best pursued by both sides when neither side can abuse it. And we all know what happens in the absence of such, we only need to look back when the republicans held absolute power for the past six years (Until 2006); a total abuse of system by the hard core right.

So it makes me wonder whether the Democrats are going to follow in the same footsteps as the Republicans did; pushing over the minority opposition all over the place without any regard to their views. Honestly, if this recipe does get cooked, and the democrats get 60 in the senate, it is not going to play out well with independents and moderates out there in the next congressional elections. Because what is going to happen is, exactly what the Republicans did to the democrats when they were in power.

Buena Suerte Republicanos!
