  •  I know we both share great respect for JK (0+ / 0-)

    But climate is not going to happen any time soon in the Senate. Our best shot was last term, and the WH kind of dropped the ball there. The POTUS's statement yesterday at the press conference pointed to no climate bill anytime soon. There is no political will for it in the country. Piecemeal stuff like when the POTUS raised CAFE standards for cars can be done, and I hope the Administration moves forward with initiatives like that. But no big move in the Senate.

    I actually think the bigger loss is to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Still, if the POTUS and JK want this, then I am for it. But I am also fine with JK staying the Senate -- I just don't want it because of feckless MA Democrats who blew it in '10 and are now holding JK hostage in the Senate. Ridiculous. Lots of hand wringing in this thread.
