Decision ’08

Obama puts the brakes on his 300C

Senator/Rockstar Barack Obama caught a somewhat unpublicized beatdown from Detroit critics a while back, after the presidential hopeful chastized the Motor City for not responding quick enough to rising fuel costs. Why? Because the junior Senator from Illinois himself drove a gas-guzzling V8 powered Chrysler 300C. Not anymore- Obama has reportedly followed suit to opponents Edwards, Dodd, Clinton, Romney and Richardson by trading in his ride for a Ford Escape Hybrid.

No word on whether Barack intends to throw some Ds on his new compromise green machine.
