Debbie Wasserman Schultz and foreign cars

The Hill says the new chair of the national Democratic party -- who ripped Republicans today for not backing President Barack Obama's auto bailout and suggested they'd have Americans "driving foreign cars" -- apparently drives a foreign car herself.

 "If it were up to the candidates for president on the Republican side, we would be driving foreign cars; they would have let the auto industry in America go down the tubes," she said at a breakfast for reporters organized by The Christian Science Monitor

"But according to Florida motor vehicle records," the Hill reports, "the Wasserman Schultz household owns a 2010 Infiniti FX35, a Japanese car whose parent company is Nissan, another Japanese company. The car appears to be hers, since its license plate includes her initials."
