More questions than answers.

Hawley:  “encouraging capital investment in the great American middle,” “investing in research and innovation in the heartland of this country,”
   - He IS a Senator from Missouri.

“challenging the economic concentration that stifles small producers and family enterprises.”
   - We should all be looking at the anti-trust aspects of these companies trying to take over society.  Why are Google, Facebook, amazon able to buy their competitors and takeover other industries as well?

Rubio:  already discussed, hard to tell if this is a change of emphasis or complete turnaround.

What about Pence, the geographic heir to Trump (he sits next to him), or Haley?

I'm not sure that things have changes that much, more a matter of which personalities will attract and prevail, in my view.

I don't think being wishy washy on core values is going to win on the Republican side. 

What they don't really say in the post Trump analysis is that there are at least two very different scenarios, if Trump wins and if Trump loses next year.  We analyze what went right or what went wrong.

Trump is a symptom of an angry electorate. Until things are unfcuked on the national level, things are not going back to "normal".

Climate Agenda for Republican
« Reply #106 on: February 13, 2020, 09:33:53 AM »
One or two interesting ideas here.  Why not put carbon capture on natural gas instead of coal?  It's far easier and more efficient because NG starts many times cleaner than coal.

https://www.nationalreview.com/2020/02/republican-climate-change-agenda-innovation-carbon-capture/

"With a new generation of advanced, smaller nuclear reactors poised to begin coming online in the next five years, nuclear energy is one key area where Republicans can demonstrate their commitment to innovation outside basic science."
-------------------------------
Just because climate change is two and a half to seven times overstated, not fully human caused and not catastrophic doesn't mean humans aren't emitting or that CO2 levels aren't rising.

Good to be thinking about this and important to get out in front of it.  Prosperity and innovation are how we win, not prohibitions, infrastructure blocking or doing without.
