  • I know the proposal only scratches the surface,

  • But it's the least we can do.

  • We'll let harold take a look at this.

  • We'll revisit it.

  • Jerry, say hello to linda for me.

  • If we don't see you before thanksgiving,

  • Have a good holiday.

  • Thank you, mr. President.

  • So, how are we doing?

  • You're running 4 minutes ahead of schedule.

  • Ahead? Yes, sir.

  • Gee, that's unprecedented.

  • I don't know what to do with myself.

  • Mr. Macinerny asked me to remind you

  • To pop in on the--

  • Oh, right, the gdc meeting. Yeah.

  • Rest assured, your concerns

  • Are not falling on deaf ears.

  • The environmental lobby

  • Has known no greater ally in the white house

  • Than president shepherd.

  • Hardly an impressive distinction, a.J.

  • Sydney, we should leave mr. Macinerny alone now.

  • He's already given us more time--

  • Mr. Macinerny doesn't want us to leave him alone

  • Because mr. Macinerny's not yet done

  • What he needs to do today.

  • Susan: Sir, uh, ms. Wade's been thrown into the deep end

  • Of the pool on her first day.

  • She hasn't even had a chance to read the report

  • Of the quebec conference.

  • You're right. I haven't read it.

  • If someone had asked me yesterday,

  • I would have told them that the quebec conference

  • Was made up of 6 professional hockey teams.

  • But what I do know is that it's time for the president

  • To run for president again.

  • Leon kodak is as good as it gets

  • When it comes to electoral strategy,

  • And I'm certain he's told the president

  • Exactly what I'd tell him.

  • You got to nail down michigan and california

  • Where they make cars and airplanes

  • And they burn plenty of fossil fuels,

  • But if I'd read these 800 pages, I would have discovered

  • That it's the burning of fossil fuels

  • Which is mostly responsible for global warming

  • And that the 20% reduction recommended by the gdc

  • Is a necessary first step toward arresting

  • The catastrophic greenhouse effect

  • Which has gone unchecked by this administration.

  • It's really time for us--

  • Susan, I promise you, the white house chief of staff

  • Will not let us leave here until he's broken the bad news.

  • I'm afraid sydney's right,

  • Although not about michigan and california.

  • The president has asked me to convey to you

  • That he's sending his energy bill to the floor

  • With a call for a 10% reduction.

  • The president is willing to go it alone on this,

  • But he's asking for, and frankly,

  • He's expecting the full support of the gdc.

  • The president's expecting our full support?

  • Yes, he is, sydney.

  • The president's dreaming, a.J.

  • Sydney!

  • The president has critically misjudged reality.

  • If he honestly thinks that the environmental community

  • Is going to whistle a happy tune

  • While rallying support around this pitifully lame mockery

  • Of environmental leadership just because he's a nice guy

  • And he's done better than his predecessors,

  • Then your boss is the chief executive of fantasy land.

  • Let's take him out back and beat the shit out of him.

  • Good morning. How are you today?

  • Couldn't be better. My apologies for the interruption.

  • A.J. Suggested I come by and say hello.

  • You wouldn't be sydney ellen wade

  • By any chance, would you?

  • Mr. President, I'm, uh... Don't know what to say.

  • I'm speechless.

  • All evidence to the contrary.

  • We haven't met. I'm susan sloan.

I know the proposal only scratches the surface,
