    What Legacy?

    04/16/2008

    I'm in the American Spectator this morning with a piece speculating on the motivations behind Bush's global warming speech yesterday. One thing I didn't note was that McCain's people are probably frustrated by this. While Bush didn't go all the way in endorsing cap and trade, as McCain has, he did substantially moderate his position on the issue, meaning it will be even tougher for McCain to differentiate himself from the current administration. Of course, both McCain and the Bush administration could benefit from taking a hint from Jim Manzi and opposing any sort of carbon tax (and cap and trade is just a less efficient carbon tax) altogether.
