Question for those that say you dont need a SUV or truck etc,
have you have driven in FEET of snow,and only reason you know the road is there is you can see telphone poles on both sides? SOrry a prius just not gonna cut here in the winter.
lol that is the only reason i have it, outside of that i hate it.
I have also driven in the lovely midwestern snow in an SUV, and I sure didn't feel any safer.
I am all for urging more fuel efficient cars. Period. There are hybrid SUVs out there. It isn't the type of the car so much as it is the gas consumption. If you have a Hummer but try not to drive it anymore than absolutely necessary, you are doing better than someone in a little Toyota hatchback who drives down the block 50 times a day because they're too lazy to walk.
As for John Edwards, I've come to accept that there will never be a politician I like personally much, but his ideas are pretty good and I hope he wins the primaries so I can volunteer for his campaign.
