It's not that hard to doWrite a straightforward headline and news story, I mean. Case in point. As of this writing, the lead headline on the Web site of the conservative German paper Die Welt is Republikaner torpedieren Obamas Konsens-Vision (Republicans are torpedoing Obama's vision for consensus) 13.02.2009.
"Torpedoing", it says. Did I mention this is a conservative newspaper?
Do we need to look farther to know that the American press isn't treating the story that way?
Los Angeles Times: Gregg's exit as Commerce nominee nudges the partisan gap wider
Washington Post: Gregg Withdraws As Commerce Pick
New York Times: Gregg Ends Bid for Commerce Job
San Francisco Chronicle: Gregg drops out as Commerce secretary nominee
USA Today: Commerce nominee withdraws, cites 'irresolvable conflicts'
Washington Times (aka, Moonie Times): Obama faces a Cabinet setback, again
And, just a wild guess: the Pod Pundits on the Sunday news shows will be wringing their hands in deep concern over Obama's failure to produce more "bipartisanship".
So, I guess maybe for our press corps, it is that hard to do!
