  •  Getting Dingell "out" as climate/energy chair... (4+ / 0-)

    ... was the right thing to do.  Dingell has been a major foot-dragger (knuckle-dragger) on stuff like CAFE standards.  One could make the argument that even the auto industry, which he ostensibly did this for, would have been better off had they been pushed in that direction many years ago.

    He wasn't pushing him out of the Congress, just gate-keeper committee power over that kind of issue.

    •  And one (0+ / 0-)

      can make the argument that jobs are more importantant than climate legislation (which I won't), or that many in the party will bend over backwards for the financial sector but will make an industry that employs 1 out of 10 Americans go through hoops with a not too veiled desire to see it fail.  

      And voters might make those arguments in November.
