P.S. I should refine my comments somewhat. I didn't mean to imply that Mullaly isn't doing a great job on his own merits, or that he got as much political support and Fed cash as GM. Ford certainly was wise to avoid taking Fed funds and to bring back their dividend. But... just saying, the US auto industry is the holy of holies in DC right now, there's no way it'll be allowed to go away any time soon.
