Vilsack Joins Clacker In A New Hampshire Basement. Nothing Is Below Us. Literally.

Former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack (and his lovely wife Christie) came to Epping, New Hampshire this morning to "discuss" Hillary Clinton's environmental leadership with regional environmental leaders.

That "discussion" included a tour of the town hall basement where the Epping Town Fathers plan on removing the old hall furnace and replacing it with a Ecopower Micro-CHP.

In fact, Epping is renovating and "Greening" their entire town hall. And it's making some (good) news in the process.

After the tour, Vilsack spoke with Epping residents (and two reporters who were kept in line by Clinton's new NH deputy communications director Carly Lindauer) about why he likes Hillary Clinton's energy plan.

Crib Notes: 1. Strategic Investment Fund 2. Cap and Trade System.

Also, we would be remiss if we didn't mention that sprinkled throughout Vilsack's talk was tough rhetoric regarding Hillary's plan to stick it to the oil companies.

Or something like that.

Hey, we're all for it.

Let's take away Exxon-Mobile's tax breaks and OUTRAGEOUS royalty relief and help remind them that it's time to get cracking on developing a new fuel source.

Fossil fuels are so like yesterday.
