On General Motors:
"My greatest regret is over the maneuvering and politics and power-grabbing going on inside the corporation, which distracts them from making the finest cars in the world. Too much energy is being used up in corporate in-fighting. The corporation ought to be devoting its energies to making the finest cars in the world, and not get tied up in management power struggles and Machiavellian intrigues, and that's what is going on. It's sad to see."
--H. Ross Perot, the Texas billionaire who was ousted from GM's board last year.
