Video of a panel discussion on how global warming is covered by the media in the U.S., recorded in all its shaky, uneven glory at the 16th annual conference of the Society of Environmental Journalists in Burlington, Vermont.
Republican strategists do not expect to save Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.), whose numbers hover around 40 percent, or Sen. Conrad Burns (R-Mont.), who is in roughly the same position. Democrats are far enough ahead in Montana, and have a strong enough statewide organization, that they have pulled out their money.
Santorum trails not only in the polls but also in cash as the final days approach. Only a complete meltdown by his opponent, state Treasurer Bob Casey (D), could save him. People really dislike Santorum. Even though he always comes off as vastly more knowledgeable and intelligent than Casey in every debate, his responses are abrasive, sparing no nasty comment for his opponent. Santorum appears frustrated that a man like Casey is beating him.
