Look at how the pubs attacked one of their own in McCain for just having his name on a bill with Kennedy. If this guy would have served in a dem administration it would be his last office held as a republican. The pubs have absolutely no interest in being bipartisan.

Cooking there is no evidence of that at all. Doesn't seem to be any hostility from either side, well except for a few message board posters and political pundits, but thats to be expected.

No evidence that he knew about the stimulus plan and the census? No chance that he would have served the country more effectively as an Administration insider?

If he discovered that perhaps he was going to be just a marginal player in the Administration or not be let in on certain things, that's a good reason. Quitting over things that he had knowledge of prior to accepting the position is not.

Let's recap, boys and girls.

Joe Lieberman..."forget party lines, I think John McCain is the best man for the job because I have worked with him in the Senate for all these years and I know he's sincere when he talks of bipartisanship."

Dems...."Traitor! Scumbag!"

Flash forward...

Gregg accepts job in Obama's administration, then finds out his ideas aren't really welcome, it's just the R by his name so that Obama can claim he works with the other side. Gracefully, he steps down, saying this was his mistake and not Obama's.

Dems...."The Republicans made him do it! They have no interest in bipartisanship!"

1. Lieberman was a scumbag and traitor before McCain was running. He is an independent now.

2. You seem to know a lot about how his ideas were received. Unless you mean, he came in and wanted to install the RNC platform instead of you know, the one that was elected in.

Link, please ... is it not within your ability to understand when people stand up for principles? Yes, he knew about the stimulus package and the census (that's hugely messed up that President Obama is going to politicize that process, but that's for another discussion). They had had conversations about those issues and there apparently were understandings that didn't pan out.

I know you think that only Democrats have principles.

Both parties are guilty of gerrymandering; and all it is is a political process. See: Texas in the 90's.

The good thing for Dems is that historically they get more support from counting actual people, Republicans get more support from not counting actual people, so at least the Dems are actually approaching the problem from a more honest perspective (in theory).

See: Mickey Mouse and all the other voters signed up by ACORN, which stands to get billions out of this pork-filled "stimulus package"
