    A "bridge loan"... to nowhere. All 2.8 of them!

    Turbo machine = Boeing. Anyhow I like Mulally for sure, although he paints things quite a bit rosy. I think an earnest perspective is important, and he has one, but he needs more. Take the car and plane and get to know American living. Although Americans themselves are looking greener grass, so keep that in mind also. Ford I think has some good cars, just the wind is not blowing there way when it comes to public perspective, and Ford cannot really do anything about that. Ford can try their best and see if folks will listen, Mullaly being a pretty ok CEO, perhaps the public will change perspective. I think reliability will win out, followed by style. Ok GO!
