Hillary Can’t Wait for Keystone?

“I’m putting the White House on notice.”

While serving as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton began the Obama administration’s review process for the Keystone pipeline. During her campaign, she’s used that process as an excuse to avoid taking a position on it. She says she “put together a very thorough, deliberative, evidence-based process to evaluate the environmental impact” of the proposed pipeline from Alberta to Nebraska. In July, she declared she would “refrain from commenting [on Keystone] because I had a leading role in getting that process started and we have to let it run its course.” In fact, she went so far as to say, “If it’s undecided when I become president, I will answer your question.”

Hillary 2016: You Just Wait.

Well, so much for that — she’s getting impatient. “I have been waiting for the administration to make a decision,” she announced this week. “I thought I owed them that. I can’t wait too much longer. I am putting the White House on notice. I am going to tell you what I think soon because I can’t wait.” Translation: She’s not putting the White House on notice about anything but is instead feeling pressure from ecofascists to oppose the pipeline. Given the steady flow of her poll numbers in the wrong direction, she’ll take anything as a boost. The Obama administration has been caught between the greenies on the one hand and unions who want the jobs the pipeline will create on the other. Few doubt that both Obama and Clinton oppose the pipeline — or it would have been approved already — but they can’t bring themselves to anger the unions.
