What's wrong with the United States

Today Al Gore gave a major speech on energy.* Meredith thought she would jot down her reactions as Gore speak live on CNN. Meredith blogs:
- borrowing money from china to buy oil from middle east. that has to change.
- [. . .] bold, new strategy to empower America: 100% of energy electricity and renewable and carbon-free sources within 10 years.
- Has he been talking with Boone Pickens? I hope so.
- Wind, solar, etc. getting cheaper and cheaper.

Dammit, CNN cut him off and now I’m watching McCain at a Kansas City Town Hall meeting talking about dependency on foreign oil and alternative energy resources and nuclear power. [ . . . ] Wow, CNN - this is sooooo much more important than a new energy initiative proposed by a former presidential candidate. Morons.
Meredith said it.

SPECIAL COVERAGE I live-blogged the spontaneous Obama victory celebration in Washington DC. Experience what it felt like to be among thousands of deliriously happy people gathered outside the White House. Click here.

Previously, I had been blogging about the Obama, McCain and the US election. I wrote about Sarah Palin on this blog even before McCain chose her to be his running mate. The choice was disappointing, and a possibility I had anticipated.
