Thom Friedman has an excellent op-ed on US energy policy and its inherent wimpiness. Short, succinct and persuasive. No, more than that: it makes one acutely anxious about our lack of political courage to do what’s in the best interest of the country from a domestic and foreign folicy perspective.  I’m sold.

But still…

I think it a BIG ask to expect Obama to move on this now. A gas tax should be an administration goal, but only after the unemployment rate has dropped, health care reform has been passed, and his stimulus package has produced a more robust economic response for all the nation to see.
