In a surprise move yesterday, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton called for "most of the country" to return to a speed limit of 55 mph in an effort to slash fuel consumption.There is something about Hillary that one can only describe as politically tone-deaf. People just don't want this. If they did want it, you would see more people in the slow lane driving at 55 mph. She will not be the next president, and that means no other Democrat will be either.
"The 55-mile speed limit really does lower gas usage. And wherever it can be required, and the people will accept it, we ought to do it," Clinton said at the National Press Club.
