(08-28) 04:00 PDT Denver -- In some ways, the Dems' confab sounds a bit like a Republican convention. For example:
-- Nuclear energy? It's big here. The daily convention edition of the National Journal has been running pro-nuclear energy ads on page two every day - and touting the support of Democratic Party biggies.
"Under any scenario, we're going to see more nuclear power, because it's just going to be more cost-effective once there's a price on carbon," quoth one Western senator.
Sen. John McCain? Nope. Sen. Barbara Boxer of California.
Radioactive is the new green.
