The President and the Governor face to face
Gray Davis says federal action is needed to keep California's energy crisis from dragging the nation toward a recession. George Bush says the price controls that Davis is asking will only make things get worse. With the economies of the State and the Nation potentially at risk, political stakes are high for both leaders. Both men are trying to avoid the blame for intractable problems neither one of them caused. And both of them know that no solution that's been proposed will be free of serious risk. Today-on the President's first visit since last year's election-the Governor was offered 20 minutes to make his case. Tonight, we'll find out if either man blinked.
