Merkel sees "sea change" in America

According to the New York Times today, following passage by the House of Representatives last night of a climate change bill, "the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, who was in Washington on Friday to meet with Mr. Obama, strongly endorsed the bill.....and said she had seen a 'sea change' in the United States on climate policy that she could not have imagined a year ago when President George W. Bush was in office."

Maybe she's happy that the United States has now moved closer toward adopting a "cap and trade" system somewhat similar to the one that failed abjectly in the European Union (because grossly excessive credits were ladelled out initially). But I bet those massages made our prior policy go down easier....
