Don't believe what the Coast Guard or Ken Salazar are saying. It's too early to tell. Even after BP starts pumping cement into the well to seal it there will be risks and the potential for a major setback. This offshore drilling business is serious, dangerous work. It's a little more involved than flying around in Air Force One and calling for investigations, hearings, moratoriums, and other public relations spectacles.
Let's just hope and pray this works, and hope and pray that when the thing is finally capped the administration and BP will embark on an aggressive campaign to re-mediate the damage, something they have yet to do -- after nearly 37 days!
