    i wonder how Sen. McCain is going to explain the possibly illegal millions in campaign donations from big oil? It seems to be way over the limit. And there is people forced to donate against their will with Big Oil's money.

    Is part of Sen. McCain's energy plan to have Shell and BP nuclear power plants on every block?

    P.S. how does Sen. McCain plan to take care of the nuclear waste from the plants that will remain highly toxic and radio active for 10,000 years? And how to deal with all the nuclear waste that the current plants are storing, wating for Yucca Mountain to store it?
