Shaheen claimed she never opposed nuclear. She protested the Seabrook station.

Really and truly, she did claim that.
Because there’s this thing called YouTube now, you know:
RT @BDayspring: Video of [mc_name name=’Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’S001181′ ] opposing Nuclear power in 1987. She directly lied during debate. http://t.co/PZSmbusv4M #NHpolitics

And this is not out of context. From the same debate:
Look, it’s one thing to change your mind and now support nuclear power: it’s another to pretend that you always did. The first is merely a demonstration that you no longer take seriously the theocratic ravings of a bunch of profoundly anti-scientific progressive Greenie yahoos. The second suggests a certain inherent cowardice, manifesting as a fundamental unwillingness to admit that, yeah, really, you were one of those yahoos yourself. Guess we now know what [mc_name name=’Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’S001181′ ] sees when she looks in the mirror, huh?
