Check out this news story from Yahoo.
David Axelrod, the architect of Obama's electoral victory, has had an intoxicating whiff of power. Now he's playing industry expert and telling Detroit how to run their businesses. Check out this quote:
"Axelrod couldn't resist taking a jab at the executives. "I hope that they will come back to Washington in early December — on commercial flights — with a plan," he said."
I couldn't agree more that the CEOs of Chrysler, Ford and GM should take pains to look like careful stewards of their businesses when they crawl to Capitol Hill, hats in hand. Taking commercial flights might not be a bad idea for appearances, even if it costs time.
But I can't help but wonder how often Axelrod will take commercial flights once he is on Obama's White House staff?
