Gil, it's not that Obama is backing away from his commitment. He just expects a bigger delay in congress by the republicans:"Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives had promised legislation on CO² reductions by the end of May. The Senate is operating on a longer time scale – though the Democratic leadership too has promised to introduce legislation before Copenhagen.But the White House now evidently believes that both those schedules are unrealistic after the wrangling in Congress over the economic rescue plan.The rescue plan ran into concerted Republican opposition, preventing Obama from making good on an election promise to end partisan bickering in Washington."
Bob,Doesn't it work both ways? How is there bipartisanship when NO Democrats vote "no" on the rescue plan? If you want to consider all the Repubs voting against it being divisive, wouldn't the same hold for the Democrats? Lets at least be fair.
