Obama: "Repower America."

In the video below, Barack Obama, seated with Joe Biden and Al Gore, states a commitment to "repower America" by using the problems associated with climate change as an opportunity to reduce foreign-oil dependence and create jobs for a new green economy. Gore introduced the "Repower America" concept in a speech earlier this year. Obama doesn't specifically commit to Gore's 10-year, 100% clean-energy goal, but it's significant that he's made energy policy and green jobs a dominant theme of his transition. Thanks to the Daily Kos.
