ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the impact of the U.S. Democratic Party's victory in the November 2006 midterm Congressional elections on environmental protection in the country. The next speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, has a strong environmental record. Other candidates with environmental-leaning resumes were elected to office as well. But President George W. Bush can have his veto pen at the ready. More than ever, both Republicans and Democrats need to compromise.
