In a post on April 1, The Spiraling Cost of Diesel Fuel- U.S. Independent Truckers React, I challenged the U.S. presidential candidates to communicate a coherent strategy and discourse for the energy impacts on global supply chains. I was viewing my evening dose of Jim Cramer on CNBC, who just happened to be interviewing Senator Hillary Clinton. To my very pleasant surprise, Hillary not only mentioned her concerns and observations related to the rising cost of diesel fuel and the current independent trucker protests, but also mentioned the product sourcing and supply chain issues of Heparin, which has also been cited on this blog.
Thank you Hillary, this a great start to the discourse.
Perhaps we can look forward to comments from Senators Barack Obama and John McCain as well.
