Actually, his policy on the Strategic Oil Reserve seems to me to primarily be stubbornness over the Alaskan Wildlife Refuge: my guess is that he's going to make it basically unavailable so that Congress is pretty much forced to authorize drilling. That, or he's betting a whole lot of his fiscal legacy on northern-border fields like that Bakken Formation -- if that pans out the way some people are fervently hoping, it could seriously shake up politics in this country. It could also very well mean a disintegration of relations with Canada, which would be fun too. I would not be at all surprised to see McCain start talking about it in the next few months, after the USGS upped its estimate of recoverably oil by 25 times the previous amount.
