The Ed Watch — #1: Cool Equipment


Who’s Ed Montgomery, you ask?

He’s Obama Ambassador to Detroit, otherwise known as the Executive Director of the White House Council on Auto Communities and Workers … and a one-man spin machine.

In this first installment of the Ed Watch, we see Ed listening to a question from a reporter after a press conference at Detroit Edison on October 29th. Ed was there to highlight an $83 million government award to Detroit Edison’s smart energy grid program.

We’re bringing you the picture because the economy is in trouble, we’ve got some serious problems with global warming and the economy in the Great Lakes region, Ed looks great, and that’s some cool-looking equipment behind him.
