What takes less time: a Decade or 10 years?

"Invest in a Clean Energy Future
Invest $150 Billion over 10 Years in Clean Energy: Obama will invest $150 billion over 10 years to advance the next generation of biofuels and fuel infrastructure, accelerate the commercialization of plug-in hybrids, promote development of commercial-scale renewable energy, invest in low-emissions coal plants, and begin the transition to a new digital electricity grid. A principal focus of this fund will be devoted to ensuring that technologies that are developed in the U.S. are rapidly commercialized in the U.S. and deployed around the globe."

In Barack Obama’s world, that ten-year plan is called the “fast-track”:

"Announcer: And fast-track alternatives so we stop spending billions on oil from hostile nations. New leadership for a changing world.
Obama: I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message."

Meanwhile, John McCain apparently just wants to lollygag his way through the “crisis”:

“Not a drop more.
McCain plan to open up our coastlines to drilling would not bring meaningful new production on-line for ten years.
U.S. Dept. of Energy)"

Side Notes I: And just for fun, go on and hit the link for the “U.S. Dept of Energy” that the Obama campaign site uses to supposedly back up that analysis. Bonus points if you actually find a reference to the U.S. Dept. of Energy.

Side Notes II: And what is it with Senator Obama and 10 years:

“The objective of this trip was to have substantive discussions with people like President Karzai or Prime Minister Maliki or President Sarkozy or others who I expect to be dealing with over the next eight to 10 years.” The Corner on National Review Online

Is he expecting an encore two years awarded at his curtain call after he’s used up his constitutionally-limited eight years?
