So I think that it's not inventive policies that
are missing; I think they're fairly obvious in this case. I think it is
political will. But I think, I'm hopeful, frankly, we could be near a
tipping point because I think that— I had a lunch, for example, with a
bunch of congressional staffers earlier this year and it was interesting. I
asked them— this was a mixture of Republicans and Democrats. Obviously
they were interested in energy, but that can be a pretty broad slice of folks.
And I asked them, you know, "Would your bosses support vehicle efficiency
standards?" And they went around a circle, and two-thirds of them said
no. And I said, "Well, would they support feebates, so it was still a
market-driven thing, as opposed to simply a decree?" And in that audience,
two-thirds of them said yes.
