    I asked yesterday in a thread what that was about and no one replied, as you likely know there is lots out there but there is nothing on Obamas web site about what his nuclear policy is that I could see. It probably would be a good idea for his campaign to add a paragraph on his policy.

    •  he's spoken about it in debates... (0+ / 0-)

      & I agree - he should have something on his website.

      Here's something from the January 15th MSNBC debate:

      Russert: I want to pick up on that.
      Senator Obama, a difference in this campaign: You voted for the energy bill in July of 2005; Senator Clinton voted against it.

      That energy bill was described by numerous publications, quote, "The big winner: nuclear power." The secretary of energy said this would begin a nuclear renaissance.

      We haven't built a nuclear power plant in this country for 30 years. There are now 17 companies that are planning to build 29 plants based on many of the protections that were provided in that bill, and incentives for licensee construction operating cost.

      Did you realize, when you were voting for that energy bill, that it was going to create such a renaissance of nuclear power?

      Sen. Obama:  Well, the reason I voted for it was because it was the single largest investment in clean energy -- solar, wind, biodiesel -- that we had ever seen. And I think it is -- we talked about this earlier -- if we are going to deal with our dependence on foreign oil, then we're going to have to ramp up how we're producing energy here in the United States.
