Foreign Relations 090 for Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) [UPDATED]
I had forgotten that the D stands for "Don't expect him to be checked out on this subject," you see.

[UPDATE] Thanks to reader cmz, we have the original video, also on YouTube:
As you can see, the video was not distorted; it is instead a kiss-up to the progressive group Caucus4Priorities. Nice to see what Senator Obama's are.
Let us review this video, once again:
Please note this passage: "...I will seek a global ban on the production of fissile material..."
Now note this paragraph:
Of the 30 countries with nuclear power, the percentage of electricity supplied by nuclear ranged widely: from a high of 78 percent in France; to 54 percent in Belgium; 39 percent in Republic of Korea; 37 percent in Switzerland; 30 percent in Japan; 19 percent in the USA; 16 percent in Russia; 4 percent in South Africa; and 2 percent in China.
In other words, Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) just informed at least four of our allies, one friendly neutral power, one of our rivals, and not incidentally, us, that he wants to turn off the lights: and he's also told a future strategic rival that the round-eyes are still dedicated to holding down the Middle Kingdom. Don't think that they won't notice: don't think that this won't appall some, and confirm all the stereotypes of the rest; and don't think that the aforementioned rivals are going to be as tolerantly amused at the simplisme naif as the French will be.
Foreign Relations 090, Senator: First, do no harm. It's a simple concept to learn.
