This article proposes that Mitt Romney be appointed to head the new General Government Motors. Obama gets to coopt another potential 2012 rival (and another Mormon one at that). Mitt gets…well, I’m not sure what Mitt gets out of the deal but a lot of headaches and the thrill of being coopted, but that was apparently enough for Gov. Huntsman.
But more seriously, it is possible to see that Mitt might find the assignment interesting. What if he is able to help turn GM around, just like he did with the Olympics? He could be another Lee Iacocca!
