Bye-Bye Bill :-(

Politico is announcing (and that means everyone else will be momentarily) that Bill Richardson has withdrawn his name from the position of Commerce Secretary, to which he was appointed in November. He's citing an "ongoing investigation" into a company that has done business with the state, which he said "would have forced an untenable delay in the confirmation process." Sad... but the kind of responsible politics we don't see often - G-Rod, anyone? (just step down!)
