… for 60 votes (sub rqd) to overcome the inevitable filibuster of Lieberman-Warner.

Meanwhile, Friends of the Earth — the only green group to come out against L-W early and consistently — has launched a “fix it or ditch” campaign on the bill. It’s running print ads in The Hill and Roll Call.

Frankly, I don’t see any scenario in which the L-W bill is “fixed” during this session of Congress. Everything Boxer’s going to have to do to get the votes is going to make an already-weak bill weaker. In the immortal words of Han Solo, I’ve got a bad feeling about this.
