    Is Mark still commuting from Miami or is he a Michigan man these days?

    Fields is not giving up his Florida residency for the job, long term prospects don't seem great

    So is Mullaly going to Microsoft, the place he wasn't going because he was staying at Ford long term? There's a relationship built on honesty!

    It will be interesting to see how Ford transitions to a new CEO. Ford could slip back into old habits but considering the length of time Mulally was at Ford, one would hope that he cleaned up the "old boy's" network. I have to laugh at Z71_Silvy. Those comments of his aren't worth the bandwidth to rebuke.

      The problem is that there's a tendency for backsliding. I've been re-reading "On a Clear Day You Can See General Motors" and I'm reminded of how Pontiac started going retrograde the instant DeLorean was moved to Chevrolet.
