The WINC 92.5 FM Morning Mindbender yesterday asked:
Besides running for president, what do Barack Obama and John McCain have in common?
Neither have ever driven a stick shift automobile!
Since both candidates claim to be committed to the environment and reducing dependence on foreign oil, perhaps they should learn how to operate a manual transmission. As reported earlier, stick shift cars get 2-4 miles per gallon more than hi-tech automatic transmission vehicles. Driving a manual transmission car seems like an easy way to reduce not only pollution, but also reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil.
I suppose whoever wins won’t be driving themselves around very often though.
