Don't expect Hillary Clinton to repudiate the EPA rule as she campaigns in 2016. She also knows where the muscle is in the new Democratic coalition.
There is one political catch, however, and that is the composition of the Senate, where North Dakota gets as many votes as California. That reality might haunt Democrats this year because they are trying to hold or gain Senate seats in Kentucky, West Virginia, Montana, Alaska and Louisiana, among other right-leaning states. If voters ever figure out what Mr. Obama's carbon rule really means to their state economies, Democrats would lose every one.
So it's no surprise that the Democrats running in those states are already denouncing the new EPA rule as if it had been written by some alien force. Incumbent Mary Landrieu (La.) is vowing to offer a bill in the Senate to overrule it, as is Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes in Kentucky. Ms. Grimes is running ads in local newspapers showing an image of a miner in a hard hat with the text: "President Obama and Washington Don't Get It . . . Alison Grimes Does."

Grimes, from her ads here, is apparently appalled at the behavior of both parties.
What a POS on two feet.
And that is a vote for the Obama agenda.
