Joe, Again!

Joe Biden is having so much fun in this campaign, it seems he's forgotten that he's the candidate for Vice President. Thus, we add a third confusion today from Joe, who says no to any new coal plants. This contradicts Barack's position - the campaign website says that the pair would "Develop and Deploy Clean Coal Technology."

Some great rope line video from Joe Biden's recent Ohio swing, where he was
asked by an anti-pollution campaigner about clean coal -- a controversial
approach in Democratic circles for which Obama has voiced support, particularly during the Kentucky primary.

Biden's apparent answer: He supports clean coal for China, but
not for the United States.

"No coal plants here in America," he said. "Build them, if they're going to build them, over there. Make them clean." "We’re not supporting clean coal," he said of himself and Obama. They do, on paper, support clean coal.

The answer seems to play into John McCain's case that Obama has been saying "no" to new sources of energy.

In the primary, Biden opposed Obama's push for clean coal, which is seen as a way of maintaining or expanding America's coal-burning power plants -- many of which are in rust belt swing states.
