PETA miss the chance to educate nearly 1 million people about the benefits of vegan eating? Kale
of President Barack Obama's inauguration were so smitten by Chris P. Carrot,
Celery Stalk, and Mother Earth that they actually lined up to have their
pictures taken with the patriotic trio and snatched up vegetarian/vegan starter kits and copies of "Glass Walls"—a video narrated by Paul McCartney—while they were at it.
vociferous vegetables even managed to win over a woman who was willing to
consider eating fewer animals than she was wearing:
his inaugural speech, President Obama promised to "respond to the threat of climate
change." We can't think of an easier—or tastier—way to do that than
by going vegan.
