Pres campaigns move to the Great Lakes…

From David Dempsey (Great Lakes Blogger)
…suddenly water becomes an issue.

Sen. John McCain promised this afternoon that as president he would not allow diversion of Great Lakes water to parched areas of the country and would work with Detroit carmakers to develop new technologies to lessen the nation’s dependence on foreign oils.
“I would not take one drop of water,” the Arizona senator told about 1,000 attendees at the Americans for Prosperity Summit at the Laurel Manor in Livonia. “That water belongs to the State of Michigan and the surrounding states.”

On the other hand:
Environmental issues important to the Great Lakes are getting little respect and few commitments from presidential candidates.
