Starting to like the Business Roundtable

I'm starting to like the Business Roundtable. Last month the CEOs' club published a report demanding action on climate change and promoting renewable energy; today they came out in favor of healthcare reform. Of course they still represent the corporate interest — the energy report also promotes nuclear power and "clean coal", and the healthcare report is decidedly lukewarm about the public option (never mind single-payer), but still, what a contrast to the (coincidentally, mostly Republican) obscurantists and obstructionists on the board of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
