Obama Might Not Be a Complete Disaster
Merely a half disaster. He's apparently been bought by a nuclear utility called Exelon:
In other words, Obama might be corrupt enough to be tolerable.
A prominent supporter of Yucca Mountain, though, is Exelon Corp., an electric utility based in Chicago.
Exelon operates the largest nuclear fleet (17 reactors) in the United States and the third-largest commercial nuclear fleet in the world, according to Exelon's Web site.
In a speech to nuclear energy executives in May 2007, Exelon CEO John Rowe said permanent disposal at Yucca Mountain or a similar facility remains "a long-term imperative" for the industry, even while he acknowledged it would not happen soon.
Meanwhile, campaign finance records confirm Exelon is one of Obama's top contributors. The Center for Responsive Politics found that Exelon employees were his sixth-largest corporate donor group. (No. 1 was Goldman Sachs.)
Addendum: I just noticed the line about Goldman Sachs. That might explain why Henry Paulson has acted as an Obama mole.
Addendum II: I just realized that Exelon might be trying to suppress other people's nukes.
