2. POLITICS:

Moderate Dems, facing hard midterms, treat climate plan carefully

Ask Sen. Max Baucus about the president's plan for cutting electricity emissions and the veteran Democrat from Montana answers quietly. "I think climate change needs to be addressed," he allowed, before cautiously adding that he's not sure whether President Obama's use of power plant regulations is the right way to do that. "I don't know the detail, at all." The careful approach by Baucus symbolizes the distance between Obama's passionate climate supporters on the left and a handful of centrist Democrats from swing states that lean on coal.
