I think Venus is a better target. There's a planet that could really use a nuclear winter. If we were going to colonize Venus, it would really help if we knock the temperature down right away and then start working on getting the rain cycles working again.
Or course, it still rotates very slowly. I don't think we can nuke it to make it spin faster.

Where is the rain coming from ?
Can we possibly know what will grow?
The soil is antibacterial.
And it has no magnetosphere, so its constantly irradiated.
Not enough gravity, not enough air pressure, no magnetic shield to speak of, not worth the price of 2 nukes to find that out the hard way.
