Moderate Dems want Senate to focus on jobs, economy rather than cap and trade

Several influential moderate Democrats made it clear today that they would prefer a near-term focus on jobs and economic recovery rather than dive too deep into the comprehensive global warming and energy legislation. But Senate Democratic leaders insisted that they would not be making any rash decisions to shift their legislative strategy in the wake of last night's stunning Republican victory in a Massachusetts special election. "I think that there will be a greater focus on jobs and the economy," said Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.). "I don't think that means they're going to not address climate change, but I don't think it will have quite the prominence that jobs and the economy are going to have."
