WASHINGTON (AP) -- The auto makers brought their hydrogen-powered cars to Washington and President Bush marveled.

Suddenly hydrogen has become the center of a new, revived energy debate after Congress struggled for two years to enact a broad energy agenda for the nation -- in the end failing -- with hydrogen getting barely a mention.

After drawing attention to the potentials of hydrogen, which can power everything from cars to cell phones, in his State of the Union address, Bush said Thursday he considered his $1.5 billion hydrogen development plan a legacy for future generations and key to the nation's energy security.
