WASHINGTON, DCway, but Evan and Jon have left me in the dust when itcomes to authoring books. Both have written bestsellers.I hope you've enjoyed many of them, and if you haven't,today is your opportunity. Go to Amazon.com, Barnes &Noble.com, Barnes & Noble -- anywhere, we don't reallycare. Jon spoke on FDR's first 100 days. It's quiterelevant today as Obama goes through these first fewmonths, and I think in the future you'll hear more fromJon on that in another book. Evan is the author of verymany good books. Most recently he wrote a Newsweekbestseller called "A Long Time Coming," which waspublished in January and incorporated a 50,000-wordnarrative of the historic 2008 election that Newsweekfeatured two days after the election. He's got a new bookcoming out in another year to 18 months called "WarLovers, How We Got into the Spanish-American War."Both Evan and Jon appear regularly in thepages of Newsweek and are among our greatest talents. Ithink you'll understand why after you hear from themtoday. It's my pleasure to introduce to you my very goodfriend, Evan Thomas.

If you look at whatBarack Obama promised during the campaign as it related toenergy, the centerpiece of it was a $150 billion plan forrenewables over 10 years. So $15 billion a year, roughly.And then he talked about 100 percent auction on a cap-and-trade system, which became the subject of somedispute. Then late in the campaign, and obviously I'moversimplifying here, but late in the campaign, when"drill, baby, drill," became the mantra of the Republicanconvention, he moved reluctantly toward drilling on theouter continental shelf.So where do we stand now? Okay, $15billion is the bulk of what he promised. The stimulus
