Monday & Tuesday Open Thread
In a move sure to please the states' rights crowd, President Obama will grant a federal waiver to California so that the state may more closely regulate emissions than the federal government requires. Other states may choose to use the federal standard or California's more restrictive standard. This is a departure from the Bush Administration line; President Bush would not provide the waiver.
Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D-IL) will be doing television appearances today while the Illinois Senate determines if he should be removed from office after the House voted nearly unanimously to impeach him.
