Saving Bush from himself

Playing a little catch-up here.
And finally, during a photo-op at the White House last week, the president nearly caused a serious accident by attempting to plug an electrical cord into the hydrogen tank of a hybrid car. “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,” Ford CEO Alan Mulally said. “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?”

If its possible for an idiot president or your average, non-technically inclined person to plug a live electrical chord into the hydrogen fuel cells rather than the storage batteries of a hybrid car, that is flat out bad design. Take it back to engineering, Ford.
