  • What do Carol Browner & Dick Cheney have in common besides running energy policy? (albeit with opposite agendas):

    "Don't bother looking for any electronic records of Carol Browner's first stint as a federal government executive. The soon-to-be Obama administration climate czar intentionally didn't keep many.

    "In sworn testimony obtained by The Washington Times, Ms. Browner disclosed that she refused to use e-mail when she served as President Clinton's Environmental Protection Agency chief in the 1990s for fear of leaving a digital trail. She also ordered her government computer hard drive wiped clean of records just before leaving office.

The testimony referred to her days as an envl regulator in FL, where an e-mail message sent to her surfaced in litigation."
