Hey, thanks for all the great info...good stuff. I was browsing through a bunch of political websites and blogs (mostly liberal ones) and I came across your blog and find it to be very interesting. There are a bunch of others I like too, like huff post, and other news sites like politico. Do you know of any that cover politics and the environment? I saw earthlab.com which has mostly environmental info but some politics. I took EarthLab.com’s carbon calculator (http://www.earthlab.com/signupprofile/). I was pretty easy to use (and it doesn’t make me feel guilty after I take it). Are there any other blogs you would recommend? Can you drop me a link to your favorites or any ones with green info?

Yes - there is the scent of '72 in the air. And that may be the danger of this descent into political fratricide that we are witnessing. And though, Humphrey was a whore to the Johnson Vietnam policy and lost his own political soul in the process - the destruction that was unleashed all the way around approximated the traumas of the war itself - the death of Kennedy, the annihilation of McGovern and the subsequent impeachment of Nixon for the very things McGovern accused him of near the end of his campaign. Let us hope we are not about to witness a similar loss of hope and failure of leadership. And while it is easy to draw parallels between Hillary's willingness to eat "chitlin's, pizza and begals" and whatever else to stay in the race....and Humphrey's betrayal of his political roots -- with Obama morphing into a kind of McGovernesque fatally flawed character amidst his nascent power and promise - unable to land a knockout punch - STILL I have to believe that
whatever else happens the times and the monumental failure of the Bush year's will give everyone pause before casting their votes for an aging former navy pilot who's most memorable campaign statements to date are about how little he knows about the economy and how we should stay in Iraq for a 100 years if that's what it takes to clean up the mess we have made of it.

That said I really enjoyed your cautionary piece and think we should all take it to heart. Nothing is ever over until it's over. And even then it's not over.
