Don't kid yourself. Harry was appointed Chairman of GMH to move him out of the way, clearing the deck for Rick Wagoner. Rick didn't want any confusion over who was in charge of GM. Shaw is the "caretaker" CEO and Hartenstein is working the deal with Ergen.
Dam, Harry is a Lawyer!! He was put in charge of GMH for hell knows what reason. GM just can't stand to have tough busnissmen in charge of anything. Yes- men from top to bottom. I'M sure he has started one of his pet fluff programs requiring all to hold hands and cry together like Gm is so fond of doing.And oh yes ,let's not forget promoting leaders on everything except MERIT.
