Oil Man T. Boone Pickens Becomes a Wind Power Advocate

Hosted by

T. Boone Pickens savaged John Kerry four years ago by financing the "swift boat" commercials that helped sink Kerry's presidential campaign. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has invited the life-long Republican to address the Democratic caucus tonight. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid calls him "my political friend." Pickens made a fortune in oil and gas, but he's become the unlikely champion of an alternative source of energy.  Juliet Eilperin is environmental reporter for the Washington  Post.
