Over the course of this week, OffTheBus is running a primer on some of the most important foreign policy issues the next president will face. Today, the primer looks at where Obama and McCain stand on energy and environmental policy and the AIDS crisis.
The Interior Department's bungle-dee-botch is what government looks like when you make it "market-based," as Bush once put it. This kind of government answers not to the public but to the party with the most money.
McCain's record doesn't look like the record of a change-maker by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, looks like he's dominated by the same lobbyists Bush has been beholden to for the last eight years.
