    Broder is a jerk and may be a jerk for big oil, but speculation he may throw a bone to environmentalists at the same time he approves XL really amounts to a hill of beans.  Like you say, the question is whether he approves it or not.  The rest is another matter.

    Given Obama's MO to toss some crumbs - admittedly sometime significant crumbs - to his "base" while doing something with far larger negative consequences, it wouldn't be surprising to see him offset approval of XL with some such consolation prize.
