Senator John McCain, who made it clear he wasn't tech- or Internet-savvy during the 2008 presidential campaign, posted a message onto his Twitter account the other day expressing his joy over his new Ford Fusion Hybrid.
"Getting my new car today @ 12:15 pm - excited about my Ford Fusion Hybrid!" is currently the latest post from @SenJohnMcCain, who boasts more than 789,000 followers. Mr. @BarackObama has more than 1.4 million.
The Los Angeles Times, in their witty political blog "Top of the Ticket," reported that many top White House staffers &mdash including those charged with fixing the domestic auto industry &mdash prefer foreign makes. McCain formerly drove a Cadillac CTS.
