Chrysler should have sold off Jeep a few years back. I don't think anyone other than Tata Motors would buy them now, as they happily bought Jaguar and Land Rover from Ford.Obama understands the need to embrace both the free market and unions. It is a partnership that used to work.
Interesting that Chrysler wasn't included. I recall Nardelli making some threatening comments about "he's not elected yet" but I couldn't find them.
Not sure it matters. Nardelli is a bone head and Chrysler is a has been. Look for Jeep to be spun off first, followed by other assets.
