Where does McCain's VP pick stand on biofuels?

It's no secret in Iowa where the two presidential candidates stand on renewable fuels.

John McCain is infamous for standing against biofuels time after time. And he sure didn't score too well on the Iowa Corn Growers Association's survey last year.

Barack Obama, a corn-belt senator, is a strong proponent of biofuels, and has talked about them at length during the presidential campaign. Iowans liked his message, and helped propel him to win the Democratic nomination.

Obama's pick for vice-president, Joe Biden, is clearly on the right side of the debate. Just watch this video:

So where does McCain's pick for VP stand? It's a mystery. But considering her ties to Big Oil in Alaska, I wouldn't bet on her being a friend to biofuels. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
