    thing (the pipeline). you are more than legitimate about that. Obama heard you. I think you should now be motivated to work for his re-election because he listened.

    •  He did work for his re-election, (6+ / 0-)

      by flushing out his better angels.

      that Obama chose to say no to the pipeline because he is personally opposed to it. I think this is a calculated decision. And I truly believe that once he is re-elected,the pipeline goes foreward. I truly believe that. There is nothing that indicates otherwise.

        Of course.  But there's hope that with the re-election onus off his back, he could also be freer to reject the pipeline.

        Will he reject it?  I'm guessing not, but you never know, if we keep up the pressure.

        It's also possible Transcanada really can't afford to wait that long for the pipeline.

      •  Well then... (0+ / 0-)

        ....elect a House of Representatives and Senate that won't go along.

        Oh. But that would be work.
