The First Speed Bump

For those of us who thought the Obama transition was going too smoothly to be humanly possible, NBC has this news:

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson on Sunday announced that he was withdrawing his nomination to be President-elect Barack Obama’s commerce secretary amid a grand jury investigation into how some of his political donors won a lucrative state contract.

Let’s hope this isn’t just a precursor to worse things to come.
