At best, Rowe is guilty of bad form for his school-yard comments about ComEd's Ayers.

What kind of limited leadership does it take to engage in the historical, volitile, short term economics of natural gas?

The nation deserves better. Fortunately, Obama has the foresight to look beyond the self serving interests and limited thinking reflected in Rowe's comments.

30 US$/MWh * 1200 MW = 36,000 US$/hr.
300 million US$ per reactor, per year.

Not economically viable? My behind. Rather say US plutokrats want to milk the hydrocarbon cash cow for all its worth.
