    Isn’t there a huge difference between endorsing a candidate (Leach) and writing their economic policy (Gramm). Isn’t that the real answer to your question?

  3. “…as one of the two most prominent Republicans (along with former Senator Lincoln Chafee) to formally endorse Senator Obama’s candidacy …”

    Please, we have enough embarrassments as it is – Lincoln Chafee is no longer even a RINO (and good riddance).

    …and as to Sen. Gramm’s influence on de-regulation – well, good for him. He should be proud of any credit he can take toward achieving a more de-regulated society.

    We all have our villains in this – a compare and contrast of Sen. Gramm’s general deregulatory impulses and, for example, Rep. Barney Frank’s specific regulatory impulses toward Fannie and Freddie would be instructive as to the specifics for blaming (lack of )regulatory oversight.
