Barack on a bike

With the gas tax idea hopefully safely behind us and just two major party political contenders left in the race for president of the U.S., the Democratic Party's presumptive nominee, Barack Obama, spent some time over the weekend acting like still President Bush (kind of) by riding around on emissions-free, two-wheeled transportation. The AP reports that the Obama family rode with some neighbors along Lake Michigan in the Chicago area for a while until rain came. When he's not pedaling around (or using the immense energy resources required to campaign for president), Obama is in favor of higher CAFE averages, more biofuel and hybrid Hummers.
