The Washington Post wrote last year that President Obama‘s rejection of having the Keystone oil pipeline built across the country was “hard to accept.”

The publication is hoping in his second term, he’ll take another look, ignore the environmentalists who don’t want it, and green light the pipeline:

Mr. Obama should ignore the activists who have bizarrely chosen to make Keystone XL a line-in-the-sand issue, when there are dozens more of far greater environmental import. He knows that the way to cut oil use is to reduce demand for the stuff, and he has begun to put that knowledge into practice, setting tough new fuel-efficiency standards for cars and trucks. That will actually make a difference, unlike blocking a pipeline here or there.
