As for a replacement, the answer is obvious: Senator-elect Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota. While a Democrat, she’s a strong supporter of both the Keystone pipeline and hydraulic fracking, and frankly what we need now is a Secretary of Energy with some sort of practical background in energy production. At the very least, we need one who might, perhaps, have a better chance to not actually waste the $30B annual budget that we give Energy every year. I think that we’re quite done with having all of these Solyndra-level debacles all of the time, correct?
