I still find it funny

...to see ed whitacre as CEO of general motors. of course it makes sense as an appointment, familiarity with a large union workforce, proven experience making strategic decisions for giant corporations, significant experience with politicians and regulators, and of course charm, ego and an incredible resolve. Don't forget he did start as a utility lineman back in the day too. What remains unclear however is if his tenure at AT&T (and of course it predecessor and successor companies, through its long and convoluted history) can be measured as a success in terms of long term strategy and, regardless of the answer to that question, he can make a go of GM.
