In the next few days, the Energy Department will announce the first of $18.5B in loan guarantees for building new nuclear reactors, and industry experts think the first guarantee will go to Southern Company (SO). GE (GE) and others have invested tens of millions of dollars in plans for reactors in the hope that a drive for cleaner energy will force environmental advocates to rethink their skepticism over nuclear power.

    Newt and the boys had the Energy Department and the Education Department in their gunsights. Missed.

    What? I thought I heard time and again that Obama and the Demos were against clean Nuclear energy. OK, so you need a mountain to store the spent stuff. Big Deal!

    Could this mean that the Democratic party is actually testing the political winds on an important issue? That would mean that they will not be held 100% accountable for the next energy crisis - Just a year late.
    Those sly Dogs... They must be looking ahead at the 2010 elections.
