The Playbook reports:

Vice President BIDEN today 'will travel to Wilmington, Delaware. Vice President Biden will be joined by Governor Jack Markell and other Delaware officials to make a major announcement about the future of the former General Motors Boxwood Plant.' An administration official: 'This gives a window into how the U.S. auto industry is transforming--and it is tangible evidence of this White House's commitment to becoming a world leader in building electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids, as well as transitioning old factories for the new economy to put people back to work.'

Nine months in to the Obama administration and we have tangible evidence of the White House's commitment to building electric cars and no evidence that this White House is committed to winning the war that claimed the lives of 14 Americans yesterday.
