McCain broke the silence among GOP contenders to offer congratulations to Gore and urge him to support nuclear power. (The latter will happen, slightly after the last glacier melts.) Other camps seem to be following the “if you don’t have anything nice to say…” rule. Even those candidates who concede global warming is a real issue clearly don’t want to be seen endorsing the breathless fear mongering associated with Gore nor his big government solutions to reducing dependence on fossil fuels. But this is classic McCain. His indifference to “partisan politics” also conveys to the GOP base that he is “not one of them.”
