Obama Sets to Fulfill Another Campaign Promise
The beginning of higher standards for emission that the US has been trying to dodge for years with Kyoto and such? Obama thinks not. Obama is pushing states to create legislations for higher standards despite cringing from Detroit. California is taking the lead.
Obama was also interviewed recently by Al-Arabiya, addressing the Muslim nations to extend America's new foreign policy of stronger friendship and family ties. Coming from a family with Muslim members also, he is trying to win the hearts and minds of the moderates to reject extreme Muslims who resort to violence to achieve political objectives. He is also endorsing Israeli's rights to defend from external threats. He does sound like Bush prior to Sept 11. At any rate, we'll give him the benefit of the doubt to be wiser than his predecessors in dealing with the Middle East.
