Table: Flash Points in the Senate


ENERGY

Democrats hope to capitalize on public disenchantment with the Bush energy plan by introducing one with greater emphasis on conservation, energy efficiency, and tax credits to promote green technology.

PRESCRIPTION DRUGS

Senate Dems will try to force Bush to accept a broader, more expensive package of prescription benefits for seniors. Showdown issue: who should run the program--the Medicare system or states and private insurers?

TRADE

Daschle and Bush are both free-traders, however, a fast-track bill without provisions to protect the environment or international labor standards--like one backed by House Republicans--will face trouble.

JUDICIAL NOMINEES

The Bushies and Senate Democrats have reached an uneasy truce in the war over federal judgeships. But expect a fight if Daschle concludes that the White House is trying to pack the judiciary with conservative activists.
