Pipe Dreams

During the 2008 Presidential campaign Governor Sarah Palin often touted a $40 Billion dollar deal she helped strike for a new natural-gas pipeline in Alaska. But, Joe McGinniss reports that the pipeline has little chance of ever being built and Governor Palin has virtually ignored the issue, despite pressure from the Obama Administration to get the project underway. McGinniss’s article "Pipe Dreams" appears in the April issue of Condé Nast Portfolio.
