One of only two pro-gun politicians in Barack Obama's kitchen cabinet has dropped out of the running for a key cabinet post.
Bill Richardson, governor of New Mexico, was Obama's pick to become U.S. Commerce Secretary. But a grand jury investigation into how some of Richardson's political donors won a lucrative state contract caused him to remove his name from consideration.
Too bad. On the Second Amendment, the voices of reason around the conference table when the new president meets with his cabinet secretaries has been cut in half. That leaves Ken Salazar, Obama's pick for Interior Secretary.
