WASHINGTON (CNN) — Remember “drill, baby drill”? In its last weeks in office, the Bush administration is starting to make it happen by quietly starting the process of exploration and drilling off the coast of Virginia.  The move means that President-elect Barack Obama and brand new interior secretary nominee Ken Salazar — a Democratic senator from Colorado — will have to jump feet-first into the decades-old debate over offshore oil drilling. It’s an issue where the two disagreed at one point.

Wait. Virginia?
