Even Southern Republicans are becoming Francophiles

Press Review: "'It's time to look to the French,' New York Times columnist Roger Cohen wrote in January. 'They've got their heads in the right place, with nuclear power enjoying a 70 percent approval rating.' Similarly, presumptive Republican presidential candidate John McCain has wondered, 'If France can produce 80 percent of its electricity with nuclear power, why can't we?'

Amos Amerson, chairman of the Georgia House Science and Technology Committee, asking how the French system might help the United States in its 'efforts to obtain cleaner, cheaper, more stable energy.'"
