The 4-star he could replace had problems with the entrenched bureaucracy and
politicians. His critics of the past that suggested he was having trouble
getting the 150-year-old-plus company to fire on all cylinders will have similar
problems. This is due to his President who is appointing him. Good luck for
Veterans as he tries to reduce backlogs and slow leakers. The lack of
integrity at all levels will also stymy him.
McDonald is a superb executive from a great company. Wish him well.
