Glenn Thrush, on Politico, writes about speculation that the White House is drumming up plans to prevent Secretary of Commerce-designate Judd Gregg from controlling the 2010 Census. (The Bureau of the Census is part of the Department of Commerce.)
I wrote here about the politically-sensitive nature of the Census.
I've repeatedly written that I'm not a fan of bipartisanship in the Cabinet. If it's going to be a sham, where a Republican department head can't run his department, that certainly doesn't work toward changing my mind on the question.
