The Big Story

by digby

There is a lot about the incoming administration that's making me nervous. But this, which I think must be the overarching storyline of the next few years, is looking very, very good:

Barack Obama is set to deliver a surprise speech via video to the bi-partisan Governors Global Climate Summit in Los Angeles this morning.

Obama's team sends out the speech video, which renews Obama's commitment to battling global warming and casts it as an economic and national security issue.

It's the tying together of these three issues as one that makes it so potent. They really are inextricable and making that explicit is going to give Obama far more power to move on them simultaneously.

This is very smart stuff. I hope he doesn't get so bogged down in the details that he loses the narrative thread. It's essential.
