Open Thread - Slow And Steady Progress Edition


by Steve

The Times runs a story in Tuesday's edition which reports that despite the Democratic takeover of Congress and the environmental committees in each house, the environmental community is not expecting major changes in their direction between now and 2008. The Sierra Club is realistic that there aren't sufficient Democratic majorities to push through significant measures, and that any successes between now and the next election will be moderate initiatives that can garner support from GOP moderates in each house. However, it is clear that Democrats will focus their energy on hearings to question the administration's policies and ties to industry.

OK, it's your turn.
