Barbara Boxer outlines 2007 agenda
File under “why elections matter.” After listening to this, I was struck by two things:
- It feels great to know that even though I might not agree with everything the Democrats are going to do with respect to the environment, at least now there are people in charge with the public interest in mind.
- With the Democrats’ current momentum, if they can win the presidency in 2008 and increase their Congressional majorities, the next 3-5 years could be truly monumental for environmental progress. This could be an era like the early 1970s that defines a generation.
