George Bush Nearly Sets off a Hydrogen Bomb

Plug it in, fire it up, Mr. President
The Detroit News

Credit Ford Motor Co. CEO Alan Mulally with saving the leader of the
free world from self-immolation.
Mulally told journalists at the New York auto show that he intervened
to prevent President 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-Chief 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 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 This is all off the record, right?”
