Phil Gramm Returns to McCain's Side

Apparently they think that was enough time for America to forget that he called us a "nation of whiners."
Phil Gramm, who stepped down from the McCain campaign after revealing that he believed America had become a “nation of whiners,” is “back with the campaign’s top advisers this weekend.” Gramm was seated in the front row during a McCain event in Aspen, Colorado today. “I am a supporter of John McCain,” said Gramm. “I am helping him with fundraising. We have a fundraiser today and I will be with him today and tomorrow.”

Gramm has been rumored to be a possible candidate for Treasury Secretary if McCain wins.
