I'm rushing to blog some praise for the Administration on this. Because the way things have been going, it won't surprise me if they bargain this away or just back off from it completely by Friday.
But for the moment, let's give the President and his normally oil-industry-flunky Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar credit for doing something right! It even applies to parts of the Gulf of Mexico.
