Over at Politico, Glenn Hurowitz argues that at key moments, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have sold out the public interest in favor of polluting industries in their states. He says they could stand to learn something from Bill Richardson and John Edwards, whose energy/climate plans are ambitious and powerful.
I suspect that if you look closely enough at Richardson’s and Edwards’ records, you could find some evidence that they’re not above parochialism either, but on the broad point, I can only say: word.
But what about Dodd, though? He’s got a good energy plan too. Where’s the Doddmentum?
