Water woes

An Associated Press article about President George W. Bush’s dilemma in choosing how to help settle the water shortage in Georgia, Florida and Alabama quoted Charles
Bullock, a professor of political science. Facing crisis, each state has lobbied Washington, D.C., for help, which most likely would come at a cost to the other two states. Speaking about Bush’s position, Bullock said, “(His decision) is only going to antagonize somebody. You have three Republican governors. The delegations in Congress of these states are predominantly Republican, so it’s not easy politically. There’s really no easy way out of it.”
