Our Comment

"Bill has thorough knowledge of Democrat and Republican approaches to energy security. Not only is he chairman of the US Department of Energy’s Nuclear Energy Advisory Committee under Obama, but he also advised Republican candidates on overall platform preparations for the 2012 elections, which tried to reach a consensus on Republican policies on the economy, foreign policy and energy matters."
