When I read about Waxman ousting Dingell as chair of the energy committee, this is the part that's most interesting to me: It's pretty much an article of faith that America would be better off if Dingell weren't so effective at blocking CAFE increases, which, of course, he had to in order to keep the auto industry happy, which, of course, he had to do in order to win reelection in Michigan. But I suspect it might also be the case that the auto industry would also be better off in Dingell hadn't been so good at blocking increases in fuel efficiency requirements.
