WASHINGTON — President Obama tapped Sen. Judd Gregg as his nominee for commerce secretary on Tuesday, putting a third-term Republican senator with a strong pro-trade record in the thick of the administration’s efforts to turn around the economy.
While introducing his putative commerce secretary, Obama stressed the importance of the Commerce Department’s role in an economic recovery and signaled Gregg’s experiences as a businessman, New Hampshire state official, congressman and governor of New Hampshire gave him a great understanding of what keeps the U.S. economy running and helps it function better.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
