Thomas Friedman for president...

I watched Tim Russert interview Thomas Friedman last night. I think he should run for office. He is currently working on a book about the "Green Revolution" in America which should be finished by next summer (Green is the New Red White and Blue). He basically likes the direction the US is moving in becoming more environmentally friendly, but does not think we have truly entered a "Green Revolution" yet. After all, Exxon, BP, Shell, and all of the other big oil companies are now "environmentally friendly." He wonders why...during a revolution, there are always losers. His columns are also now available free of charge at the NY Times website.

Have you read his book The World is Flat? It is really good. I have a copy if you want to borrow it.

I'll have to look into _both_ books now- this one and The World is Flat. Maybe we should start the REAL Green Revolution!
