Ford saves the President

Ok, I can understand you wouldn't particularly want to plug the hydrogen into an electric outlet, but would it have really immolated President Bush?

Last week Ford presented the hydrogen-electric hybrid on the White House south lawn. In order to fully demonstrate its capabilities, and get a good photo-op, an electric charger was set up so that Bush could plug it in.

Unfortunately for the president, someone left the cord at the wrong end of the car. Fortunately for the president, Ford Motor Co. CEO Alan Mulally was quick enough to grab Bush's arm before he plugged it in.

Someone needs to work on their safety protocols at Ford if plugging in the cord at the wrong end could end with a serious injury.

The last quote from Mulally is just precious: "I wanted the president to make sure he plugged into the electricity, not into the hydrogen. This is all off the record, right?"
