Obama Campaigns in Nevada

Obama in NevadaAt a speech to be delivered later this afternoon on the quad of the University of Nevada, Reno campus, Senator Obama has some things to say about rebuilding the grid and nuclear.

To create new jobs, I’ll invest in rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure – our roads, schools, and bridges. We’ll rebuild our outdated electricity grid and build new broadband lines to connect America. And I’ll create the jobs of the future by transforming our energy economy. We’ll tap our natural gas reserves, invest in clean coal technology, and find ways to safely harness nuclear power. I’ll help our auto companies re-tool so that the fuel-efficient cars of the future are built right here the United States of America.

I guess nuclear power isn't the third rail with voters in Nevada.

To "find ways to safely harness nuclear power" implies that we are not currently safely harnessing nuclear power. His search had better lead him to the way we are doing things now. It should be an easy task.

He has been searching for a few months now. Trying to "find ways to safely harness nuclear power" is the exact same promise he made in an earlier speech.
