Obama Trying to Pry Gregg For Commerce; Filibuster-proof Senate

NH Senator Judd Gregg is under consideration to be Secretary of Commerce. In the event it happens, NH governor would likely appoint a Democrat, meaning that if Franken successfully steals the Minnesota seat which is likely, then Democrats would have a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate.

Gregg seems willing to accept only if he is replaced by another Republican.
