Richardson Loves His SUV, So There

By SHARE

His presidential platform includes slashing oil consumption in half and expanding America's hybrid fleet. But New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson says he still loves his SUV. And the Democrat is not ashamed, as he says in his new book, Leading by Example: How We Can Inspire an Energy and Security Revolution. "I'm a big guy, and I don't really fit well in smaller cars," he says. And forget the smaller hybrid Ford Escape. "It turned out to be too small for me" and his security.
