  •  There have only been two Democratic presidents (none)
    since 1968. You can take it for granted that the Republican ones aren't interested.

    Carter lost to Reagan after a single term arguably because he tried to get serious about this issue. Clinton is a right wing Democrat who was in any case under continuous attack and barely able to keep the federal government running against the opposition of a Republican Congress, let alone advance ideas the American people had already demonstrated they're prepared to destroy presidents over.

    None of that excuses Bush. It's still his turn to be responsible for taking energy independence seriously, and it's still his responsibility if he avoids it.
