INDIANAPOLIS, IND.–Rivals Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton are using the same Saudi Arabia metaphor in talking about U.S. energy independence.

Obama, May 4, 2008 in Indianapolis, Indiana on “Meet the Press.”

“But if we can figure out how to sequester carbon and burn clean coal, we’re the Saudi Arabia of coal, and I don’t think that we can dismiss out of hand the use of coal as part of our energy mix.”

Clinton, May 3, 2008, in Wake Forest, North Carolina on energy and solar panels in the desert.

“We are sitting on a Saudi Arabia of wind.”
