Earlier this week, former president Bill Clinton was in Burbank, California for a president's day luncheon with a group of assorted green-minded politicians and business executives. Also on hand was Jeremy Snyder (that's him on the left in the photo), the general manager of the Los Angeles Tesla store. Snyder was invited along by one of the early Tesla investors and a silver Roadster was also on hand.
The event was held in what is claimed to be the only Platinum LEED certified aircraft hanger in the world. Needless to say, the former prez was eager to hop behind the wheel of the diminutive battery-powered sports car. Unfortunately, as the event was wrapping up, the guys with the suits and earpieces called a halt to the fun and dragged Clinton off to his next appointment before his thrill ride. With Tesla issuing an open invitation to the former president, it's surely only a matter of time before a drive is arranged.
