    PITTSBURGH (AP) - Does John Kerry, who supports higher automobile fuel economy standards, own a gas-guzzling SUV? He does, but says it belongs to the family, not to him.

    During a conference call Thursday with reporters to discuss his upcoming jobs tour through West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan, the Democratic presidential candidate was asked whether he owned a Chevrolet Suburban.

    ``I don't own an SUV,'' said Kerry, who supports increasing existing fuel economy standards to 36 miles per gallon by 2015 in order to reduce the nation's dependence on foreign oil supplies.

    Kerry also has made rising gasoline prices an issue in the campaign against President Bush. In Houston on Thursday, Kerry said the president broke a 2000 campaign pledge to ``jawbone'' oil-producing nations by pressuring them to increase their output.

    Kerry thought for a second when asked whether his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, had a Suburban at their Ketchum, Idaho, home. Kerry said he owns and drives a Dodge 600 and recently bought a Chrysler 300M. He said his wife owns the Chevrolet SUV.

    ``The family has it. I don't have it,'' he said.

    What an idiot! LOL

    This dope will say anything to appease whomever he's speaking to at the moment. I'd bet my life if he was meeting with auto workers he would brag about supporting them by buying and SUV.

    In my opinion, this man has no credibility whatsoever.

    Sounds like something a teenager would say, not the head of a household.

    You guys are being way to hard on Mr. Heinz...oops, Mr. Kerry. Have you never thought that SHE actually does own it??? Prenups are great for women, not just men!

    Why do you think that Kerry is so all fired hot for the little guy...comparatively speaking he's on the outside looking in!

    Has he driven any car? I would think he probably prefers to get driven around by his servants.
