Michigan's Governor, Jennifer Granholm, is currently on an overseas trip to try and boost Michigan's economy. It's a trip she's cut in half from its scheduled length because of the automaker bailout discussion here in America. Still, while she was in Israel, Granholm took a peek at the Better Place model and met with Better Place's CEO, Shai Agassi. Australia, Israel and Denmark are officially on board with Better Place, and San Francisco and Japan are on the short list of potential new locations. Will Michigan join them? On her blog, Granholm wrote, "We talked about future partnerships that might be viable for Michigan, and in Michigan, we know that new energy means new jobs." Read into that what you will.
