    As far as his stance on Keystone and fossil fuels, he's no diff than Pres. Obama, who is the one to make that decision.  

    I read in the past that one of his major reasons for supporting the American coal industry in MT was so that the USA could get off its dependency of foreign oil and petro-dictators.  That was after the Iraq occupation fell apart.

    But Schweitzer as Gov also supported clean energy methods.  He favored encouraging MT farmers to grow switchgrass that would be used to make new energy fuels.

    I hope Schweitzer does run for US Senate.  He needs to stay politically viable for a Prez run.  As a senator, he'd get some media attention and he sure knows how to drive the Rethugs crazy.  Schweitzer has a SPINE when it comes to battling Rethugs.  Even if he doesn't run for Prez, I'd support him as Senator.
