Midmorning: Democrats & Iraq and the light bulb
Posted at 7:47 AM on January 10, 2007 by Bill Wareham
At 9 a.m., Kerri Miller looks at how Democrats are responding to President Bush's evolving Iraq strategy. With the president planning to request an additional 20,000 troops for Iraq, the Democrats are looking at how to block a military expansion without being accused of abandoning American troops. Kerri's guests are Noam Levey, congressional correspondent for the Los Angeles Times; Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn; Rep. Tim Walz, D-Minn; and Julian Zelizer, professor of history at Boston University.
At 10 a.m., Midmorning looks at the environmental trade-offs we make with the light bulb.
Kerri's guest is Steven Hamburg, who convinced Wal-Mart to set a goal of selling 100 million compact fluorescent bulbs a year by 2008. He is the director of the Watson Institute's Global Environment Program at Brown University.
