"I am not going to second guess [President Barack Obama] because I was in a position to set this in motion," Clinton said. "I want to wait and see what he and Secretary Kerry decide." She then followed up with what might be one of the worst rejoinders ever delivered from the campaign trail.

On August 4, the U.S. Appeals Court for the 10th Circuit shot down the Sierra Club's petition for rehearing motion for the southern leg of TransCanada's Keystone XL tar sands export pipeline. The decision effectively writes the final chapter of a years-long legal battle in federal courts.
