33. If he does approve the pipeline, it will be inexcusable to many, many people.
When you can't even capture the environmental and popular culture sides of an issue going into an election, you are conceding defeat. Obama could use the veto of the Keystone project (or its delay for -- say -- five years) to re-energize progressives, environmentalists and young voters (who, after all, will have to breathe our air longer than many of us will) -- all key constituencies in his 2008 victory.

Mr. President, it's the "no-brainers" for which you will be held most to account -- if you move the wrong way.

There's a reason they're called "no-brainers", Mr. President.
