In releasing this statement (dated Friday, but emailed early this morning), the McCain campaign sees to suggest that Phil Gramm is not going to remain under its bus. He may have a Treasury future yet:

ARLINGTON, VA -- Today, former U.S. Senator Phil Gramm issued the following statement: "It is clear to me that Democrats want to attack me rather than debate Senator McCain on important economic issues facing the country. That kind of distraction hurts not only Senator McCain's ability to present concrete programs to deal with the country's problems, it hurts the country. 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."
