Another Reason To Vote For Obama

From David Brooks' column in today's New York Times, explaining why he admires McCain's conservative approach:

"The high point of his campaign, so far, has been his energy policy, which is comprehensive and bold, but does not try to turn us into a nation of bicyclists. It does not view America’s energy-intense economy as a sign of sinfulness."

Is it genuinely conservative to support freeways and nuclear power? Aren't they a greater threat to our heritage than bicycles?

I hammer on this point constantly to my friends, but, is there any form of transportation more "conservative" than riding a bicycle?

With cycling, there's little you need to rely on other than your own two feet. It's an ultimate expression of individual self-reliance.
