Another day, a few more headlines:
The Obama administration will play a key role in reshaping General Motors' board of directors over the next six months, potentially giving it even
greater control in the management of the storied American manufacturer.
The president's auto task force plans to consult with the company as it
replaces a majority of its board, a White House official said. The
board today largely consists of the current and former chiefs of major
U.S. corporations such as Coca-Cola, Ernst & Young, Pfizer and Eastman Kodak. It is not known which of the 12 board members will leave.
The president said Monday that "the United States government has no interest in running GM."
Here is the full story. I am sure that die-hard Republicans will have every chance at equal representation on the new board.
That this story has attracted so little notice is another sign of how numb we have become.
