Is Spitzer Anti-Nuclear? Is Hillary?

Is Spitzer Anti-Nuclear?  Is Hillary?  Spitzer most likely would not take an anti-nuclear stand if he did not have Hillary’s backing.  So, there’s your answer, Hillary Clinton is anti NuclearNYPost Questions Spitzer’s Stand Against Nuclear Energy.   In an editorial, the New York Post (11/23, 648K) chided Gov. Eliot Spitzer for his “unseemly obeisance to over-the-top environmentalism,” in forcing power plants to “pay for the right to emit carbon dioxide” by joining the “10 northeastern states in a Kyoto-style project called the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), meant to combat global warming.” The Post added, “There’s more to Spitzer’s attack on energy: This year, he asked the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to perform (yet another) environmental review of Indian Point, the Westchester nuclear plant that’s up for re-licensing. So far the NRC has refused, but Spitzer has made his point: He is anti-nuclear. Yet, if Spitzer opposes conventional plants, which produce CO2, and nuclear ones, which don’t, exactly what kind of energy does he favor?”

NY Gov “Eliot Mess” – A Preview of a Hillary Whitehouse?

Eliot Spitzer, NY Governor and Hillary Clinton pal is having a difficult first term, beset with scandal, and making mistakes because of his lack of experience, is this a snap shot of what a Hillary Clinton adminstration would look like?  Would it be worst with Obama and Oprah in the Whitehouse?  If there is a scandal bombshell next year, how will it effect Hillary?

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — He was once untouchable. Eliot Spitzer barreled into the New York governor’s office barely 11 months ago riding a record-setting wave of popularity. Time magazine had named him “Crusader of the Year” when he was attorney general and the tabloids proclaimed him “Eliot Ness.”The “Sheriff of Wall Street” who had made corporate titans cower then pay up for their misdeeds was going to take the same no-nonsense approach to fixing one of the country’s worst governments.But then he got to work, and hasn’t had but a handful of good days since. At the Capitol, he’s been hit with scandal and derided as a rich brat who doesn’t play well with others. “Eliot’s Mess,” mocked the tabloids.The low point came two weeks ago when, battered in the polls and amid concerns that he was threatening to unhinge Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential bid, he surrendered on his plan to give driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.Instead of a rising political star, he is now seen as the standard for rapid political collapse.“It is very, very unusual for someone to dive this far, that quickly,” said Democratic strategist Hank Sheinkopf, who worked on President Clinton’s successful re-election campaign in 1996 and handled Spitzer’s ads in his first two campaigns.
