Feeling Good Over Green

That, and other news, in today’s Political Panorama.

Arnold Schwarzenegger opened his Governors’ Global Climate Summit in Beverly Hills this morning, buoyed by the prospect of a new occupant in the White House. President-elect Barack Obama sent a video to the conference, featuring several of the country’s prominent governors including Florida’s Charlie Crist and Kansas’ Kathleen Sebelius. The AP reports that the summit is Schwarzenegger’s attempt to influence a U.N. gathering on climate change in Poland next month.

Maher’s Optimism: Arianna Huffington, filling in for Rachel Maddow last night, queried Bill Maher about Hillary Clinton possibly taking Secretary of State, but the “Real Time” host wasn’t about to offer any critical remarks. Rather, he expressed a sense of optimism in the wake of the election of Obama. “You have to give credit when America finally gets one right,” he says, adding that it feels like progressives have been able to “reclaim patriotism from the jingoism of the religious right.”

Boycott Politics: Variety sizes up the threatened boycotts against Sundance and the Los Angeles Film Festival over Proposition 8. One point not made: The wider the boycott, the less effective it will be. That is why it’s a much bigger threat to boycott a specific restaurant or movie theater — i.e. El Coyote in Los Angeles, Holiday Cinemas in Park City — than an entire chain. It’s simply difficult organizationally, even in a viral age.

Prince Backtrack: Prince apparently believes he was misquoted in the New Yorker, which printed a statement in which the singer appeared to be casting judgment on gay culture and same-sex marriage.
