In act one, we summon the herald!
The Stevens/Murkowski letter to Bush imploring him to move on ANWR is pure political theatre. And very poor political theatre at that. Bush doesn't need convincing to drill in ANWR. Congress does. Exploring won't change the situation in congress. In fact, it might make some of the senators turn around and dig in over this. It's all very silly. I'm not sure how I'd go about it myself, if I were to try, but I won't confess to having given it a lot of thought.
