Today, Sen. Barack Obama gave a speech before the Associated Press, ripping Bush administration energy policy a new you-know-what.

Think Progress has the full transcript. There’s press coverage here.

(Our Obama mini-interview on the same subject is here.)

Update [2006-4-3 14:38:9 by David Roberts]: Hm … reading through it, I see the speech is at least as much about global warming as it is about energy independence. Which is actually more interesting — it’s one of the most forthright and comprehensive descriptions of the danger of climate change that I’ve seen from a prominent politician.
