    as the decision needs to be made well before the 2014 elections.  Decide one way and environmentalists will express their displeasure, decide another way and construction unions will express displeasure - and some Democrats in office will need to recover with their constituents on this decision.

    Democrats on the losing side need time to "heal" and regain their desire to fight for Democrats in the 2014 elections.

    Meanwhile environmentalist resources are being tied up on the Keystone XL issue to the exclusion of other environmental issues.

    The Keystone XL issue has now been in play for 5 years.

    The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.
