Say It Ain't So, Bill

Bill Richardson withdraws as the nominee for Secretary of Commerce:
New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson abandoned his nomination to become commerce secretary under pressure of a grand jury investigation into a state contract awarded to his political donors _ an investigation that threatened to embarrass President-elect Barack Obama.

Aww hell, Bill, but congrats for showing the Republicans how it's done. Just withdraw honestly, and then clear your name. We need you. And damn Blago for raising an already-high bar.
