  14. President Obama must use his scarce political capital to pass climate change legislation by December in time for the Copenhagen Climate Change conference. If U.S. legislation has not passed through Congress by then, the conference will collapse. Copenhagen is our last chance to get meaningful international agreement on reducing global warming. The evidence for this is very recent: uniqueness (10.18), Obama capital key (10.16), US key to Copenhagen (10.12), Copenhagen key to fighting warming (10.19). Even the shell impact card - fate of the planet - is brand new (10.20). There is much in this file for the affirmative, too, beyond answers to the Copenhagen scenario. You'll find nearly 20 pages of recent affirmative answers to an increasingly popular politics scenario on the Middle East peace process. The file also includes several new "winners-win" cards to use to turn any political capital internal link, including a great all-purpose uniqueness card. Finally, the file covers some generic affirmative and negative politics ground: whether Obama's "war" on FOX News will help or hurt his agenda, whether the GOP has a chance in the upcoming midterms, and, of course, health care reform. http://www.cross-x.com/evazon/product.php?id=10799
