That pipeline, when the last section is laid and its valves are opened, will lead America one step farther away from dependence on dangerous foreign powers that do not have our interests at heart.What she did not mention, however, is the project is years from completion. So far, the pipeline exists on paper.
Palin gained a reputation for standing up to Big Oil when she criticized this same pipeline, then the idea of the current governor, as a handout to ExxonMobil, BP, and ConocoPhillips. Now, she will have to work to gain the cooperation of these companies, who hold the drilling rights to much of the Alaskan North Slope, to succeed. Meanwhile, BP and Conoco have announced plans to move forward with their own separate pipeline.
What I wonder, is how she and her husband, a VP for BP Oil deal with this issue? I have the same interest in the Governor of California (Arnold Arnold Schwarzenegger) and his wife, Maria Shriver (who is part of the Kennedy clan). I guess love conquers all?
