File under “why elections matter.” After listening to this, I was struck by two things:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
