So Much for Bob Novak's Scoop

This morning Bob Novak reported that McCain and Gramm patched up ther differences. "McCain told Gramm not to worry about the expected pitfalls of a campaign surrogate. Gramm will continue as an adviser and surrogate."

This afternoon, Phil Gramm stepped down as co-chair of John McCain’s presidential campaign.

“It is clear to me that Democrats want to attack me rather than debate Sen. McCain on important economic issues facing the country,” Gramm said.

“That kind of distraction hurts not only Sen. McCain's ability to present concrete programs to deal with the country's problems, it hurts the country,” Gramm said. “To end this distraction and get on with the real debate, I hereby step down as co-chair of the McCain campaign and join the growing number of rank-and-file McCain supporters,” he said.
