Is Wagoner really a goner?

The WSJ announced that Wagoner resignation would be a condition to additional stimulus to GM. If this fact concretes, and he is not replaced with another person strange to North American car success, this is the best news the Obama Administration implements to date.

This can be the beginning of a real general recovery in the US (no pun intended).

It is a baby step in the right direction but the same could be said about let them go in to bankruptcy.

Either way, still a small baby step in the matter of a "real general recovery".

Dang, you scared me for a minute, I thought he'd passed.

He's looking much older than his Carol Burnett days, but he's not yet a goner:

And he's laughing all the way to the bank with us chumps' $20,000,000 severance package. Maybe congress will pass another ex post facto law taxing it 90%, too.

Compared to what he made in previous years, this will be good pocket money for legal fees. Now who the heck will replace him? Heard any rumors?
