Ford plant dodges closings

With a lot of help from the Pawlenty administration, the St. Paul Ford plant dodged the list of closings announced in Detroit today.

This is due in large part to the quality if the St. Paul plant workers as well as the Gov. Pawlenty's proposal to form a partnership with the St. Paul plant, with the possibilities of dabbling in alternative fuels and hybrids.

In an article on Pawlenty yesterday, Dane Smith said Pawlenty needs a big accomplishment to tout this fall (as if low unemployment, solving the worst State budget crisis ever, education reform, etc. weren't enough). He may have just found it.
