The most important Middle Eastern message in President Bush's State of the Union address dealt with teen-age driving.

The president came before Congress and announced a $1.2 billion federal investment in hydrogen-operated cars that will permit Detroit to bring watermobiles from the "laboratory to the showroom" in time to be "the first car driven by a child born today." That's roughly 16 years.

Bush's initiative came with a double rationale: It will cleanse the air and make the United States "much less dependent on foreign sources of oil."
