Martin Carrie said:"For a short time it appeared this was going to be a successful experiment, but the current environment has politicians unwilling to have an open, honest discussion of the merits of supporting one of the more ambitious and successful policy initiatives of the past fifty years."

I don't think so. The Dems saved the state two billion dollars. How did Mayo protect his shareholders when he walked away with a 70 million dollar golden parachute? Constellation collapsed on its own because of poor investments and non-transparent Enronesque dealings. If it had merged with FPL, the high would have been higher and fall would have been much harder. You poor sap. Go have a beer and cry in it.

How did the state save us 2 Billion? Also you can't say CEG would have failed with FPL because it never got the chance to suceed or fail. OH, I forgot you know it all.
