Woooohoooo! Finally Obama calls for Nuclear Energy
Two of the major scientific/energy advisors are physicists by education. I forget the titles but think its energy secretary. The other point is that while the democrats are not know as being very pro nuclear, they have to face the reality of the energy demand, global warming. The final point is that the high tech sales of American nuclear reactors, would be easier to make if they got the "endorsement" of purchase by US utilities. It would be an uphill competition to make reactor sales abroad if they are not purchased at home.
