DescriptionGregg, a Republican senator from New Hampshire, views himself as a profile in courage, but more accurately could be called a profile in petulance.

Gregg, who once voted to abolish the office of commerce secretary, applied to Obama for the job, got it and then decided he was too principled for it.

“I’m a fiscal conservative, as everybody knows, a fairly strong one,” Gregg told reporters at a news conference last week. “And it just became clear to me that it would be very difficult, day in and day out, to serve in this Cabinet or any Cabinet.”

So what part of being in a Cabinet did Gregg not understand when he sought out the job?

He has served in Washington for more than 20 years, and he just discovered there is gambling in Casablanca? He has just discovered that members of a Cabinet have to support the policies of the president? This was a revelation to him?
