This section is not about pathetic drivers, it’s about cruising a mile in someone else’s ride, to quote the Dalai Lama. You may wonder if this concept has any practical value. Practically speaking, automotive empathy is about as likely to occur as President Obama wearing Bin Laden’s dusty robes, and currently deceased Al-Qaeda leader Osama donning Barak’s capitalist threads as the Secretary of Agriculture. The resulting relationship would be the Barak Osama Bin Biden Laden Obama Administration, which for obvious reasons would never work. Terrorists make lousy farmers, and empathetic drivers make lousy terrorists. Or Chicago gangsters. Not that our President is one. A lousy driver, that is.
