…at Compact Power, a battery plant in Holland, Michigan, July 15, 2010

“My first car didn’t look like these. I wouldn’t have minded tooling around in one of these when I was 20 years old.” Obama checked out the Focus and a silver Chevrolet Volt, which he pronounced “pretty comfy.” In fact, the last time he drove was at a Secret Service training facility, he said. “They let me do my J-turn,” he told reporters in Michigan. “But I haven’t driven since that turn.”
