Credit Ford Motor Co. CEO Alan Mulally with saving the leader of the free world from self-immolation. (*Credit* isn't the word that immediately springs to mind.) Plug it in, fire it up, Mr. President --Credit Ford Motor Co. CEO Alan Mulally with saving the leader of the free world from self-immolation. :argh: 07 Apr 2007 Mulally told journalists at the New York auto show that he intervened to prevent President (sic) Bush from plugging an electrical cord into the hydrogen tank of Ford's hydrogen-electric plug-in hybrid at the White House last week. Ford wanted to give the Commander-in-Thief an actual demonstration of the innovative vehicle, so the automaker arranged for an electrical outlet to be installed on the South Lawn and ran a charging cord to the hybrid. However, as Mulally followed Bush out to the car, he noticed :cry:someone had left the cord lying at the rear of the vehicle, near the fuel tank. "I just thought, 'Oh my goodness!' So, I started walking faster, and the President walked faster and he got to the cord before I did. I violated all the protocols. I touched the President. I grabbed his arm and I moved him up to the front," Mulally said. "I wanted the president to make sure he plugged into the electricity, not into the hydrogen." :banghead:
