Above the fray? Yeah, right!
The president-elect has remained above the fray in both the case of arrested Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and the New Mexico case.
Of course, the Washington Post had to jump on that "business dealings" stuff.
New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson has withdrawn his name from consideration as commerce secretary for President-elect Barack Obama, citing an ongoing investigation about business dealings in his state.
To the credit of the Washington Post, they are not letting Obama off as easily as everyone else.
The decision is the first serious political hit for one of Obama's Cabinet nominees and comes just as confirmation hearings begin next week.With these types of problems as the President elect, imagine how many issues you will have when he is the actual President.
