What Theda Skocpol gets right about the cap-and-trade fight

The great cap-and-trade battles of 2009-10 were, for me, the culmination of an obsession that began in earnest around 2006, when Democrats re-took the House. You may recall the heady days of the 2007 Democratic primaries, when all three of the serious candidates for president Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John Edwards had competing cap-and-trade plans, as did the eventual GOP nominee, John McCain. Back then it seemed extremely important to hash out the fine policy details. It was virtually all I thought about, for years on end.

2. And what we got in its place was nothing

Which is a guarantee of trouble like nothing we've ever seen before.
