    Climate Change doesn't sell with this Congress, we need to regain control and then whip the caucus. Waiting on D.C. to do things isn't serving us well. We see from the Occupy movement what needs to be done.

      If we manage to regain the House this November and re-elect the president, we'll have more moderate/conservative Dems from swing districts, and it will be easier for them to vote for a clean energy package in the jobs context than in the climate change context.  Same thing with moderate Republicans like Snowe and Collins in the Senate.  It's not logical, but I think this is definitely the path of least resistance.
