Well, it’s a good strategy if you don’t think you’re getting the attention you want: Pick a fight. Dick Howe tells us that Jamie Eldridge directly challenged Barry Finegold’s supposed former support of ethanol and coal-to-liquid. (I’d love to get some documentation of that, if it’s true.)
“Barry, I’m surprised to hear you say you oppose liquefied coal and ethanol because up until tonight you’ve always said you’re in favor of them.”
Finegold didn’t respond in the course of the debate. Anyway, as I’ve said, coal-to-liquid is just about one of the worst ideas ever. If Finegold has ditched his support for it, good for him; in any event, a clarification of his history on this issue would be most useful.
Anyway, I’m just going to point to Dick’s site, where he’s got YouTubes of the candidates’ closing statements. Go look.
