Countryside is abuzz after President's Speech

I am hearing many people abuzz about the President's speech last night. There seemed to be a strong positive reaction to the President's strong policy proposals regarding renewable energy. Specifically he mentioned increased use of ethanol as part of the new energy mix. Today the President visited the State of Deleware stopping by a DuPont Plant and speaking to over 1,000 workers.

His emphasis is on energy security and reducing America's reliance on foreign oil. DuPont of course is one of America's largest agriculture companies and is putting an emphasis not only in corn research, but other cellulose product such as mithcanthus grass as bio-mass for conversion to fuel.
