    Though he may not be reading or responding to his Kosmail these days. Neither is Barack Obama. You'd think they were busy or something.

    One of Kerry's last diaries here Taking Charge of Our Energy Future ended with this:

    Lastly, none of this will be easy.  For too long, big oil lobbyists and special interests have stood between us and our goals. And these forces will not quietly give up the comforts of the way business has been done for decades.  

    In the last few months, we’ve seen that the forces resisting change will say nearly anything and will spread the most obvious and egregious lies to try to derail progress. Please be ready to join with us to rebut the fears ans smears we know all too well will be heading in our direction. No sooner did we announce our bill than the other side scheduled a press conference to label and distort.

    But know this - every day, I’ll be fighting to make sure people know the truth, know the danger of doing nothing, but also understand the tremendous opportunity of meeting this challenge.  

    And I’ll need your help. You need to raise your voice to make sure that we build the future that we need. Ted Kennedy taught me that the nature of good legislating requires perseverance.

    Today is only the latest round in this fight.  There are many rounds ahead. But the time has come to put America back in control of our energy future and make real progress reducing the carbon pollution that threatens us all.

      independent voice. I hope he does the right thing on this, but I won't be shocked if he doesn't. No--let me restate that--I won't be surprised.

      Sure once I was young and impulsive, I wore every conceivable pin. Even went to socialist meetings, learned all the old union hymns. Ah, but I've grown older and wiser. And that's why I'm turning you in.
