Forgive a silly Canadian for asking about the delicate world of American politics but I just had to ask. The topic of urban sprawl was on all the American TV channels when your vice president brought it up in one of his speaches.
I was amazed when I turned on the TV the next day and there were a bunch of Republicans arguing in favour of urban sprawl. Has this become a federal political issue cut along Democratic versus Republican lines or was it just a good sound bite at the time and its really a non-issue? Just because your vice president said its bad does that mean that automatically the opposition (Republicans) feel they have to say it is good? (Gee, sounds like politicians in our country.)
Excuse me if I have hurt anyones political sensibilities but I just want to know what you think is going on.
