The Volt, Obama, and Ford on the John Batchelor radio show

John Batchelor, host of the John Batchelor radio show, and Lara Brown, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Political Science at Villanova University talk about the lofty goal of 60,000 Volt/Ampera sales that Dan Akerson, CEO, General Motors, has set for 2012.

Batcheor doesn’t drive, Brown drives a Volvo, a sensible car for a Professor.

Is the coolant problem fixed in the Volt?

Is the Volt, and the GM bailout, a plus for the Obama administration?

Does General Motors talk about the administration, or what the administration thinks?

Ford, did they have a good year?
