I know we don’t usually talk much about Presidential politics here on RCC, but I just read one little thing I wanted to share.
Senator Clinton was in Fresno, California today giving a campaign speech and during her talk on alternative energy "Clinton asked how America let Brazil get ahead in terms of fuel production from sugar cane."
Well, Senator, if Florida or Louisiana had first in the nation caucuses we may be well ahead of Brazil in fuel production from sugar cane. But since all you Presidential candidates go to Iowa pandering for votes and make promises for support for ethanol production from corn, we have the system that we have. Where politics determines our alternative energy policy rather than practicality.
Just a case where the sound bite she tries to make a point with has about 100x more to the story than the 3 seconds you’ll get to see on the nightly news at 6:30.
Oh, and I have to point out the humor in her line about "the era of cowboy diplomacy" being over the same day that Chuck Norris endorses Mike Huckabee for President.
