re: Poll Says 'Big Ben' Is Right for AlcaLu With more than 40 percent saying he's the wrong person for the job, I'm wondering who that group might agree on as the proper pick. Quigley? Cindy Christy? Who else?

Me...they should have picked me!

I agree with Stevery. I believe my comment would be start by firing every single person with the word "President" somewhere in their title.

To clean house, you need someone with no prior connection to either Lucent or Alcatel. Any prior connections are only going to get in the way.

re: Poll Says 'Big Ben' Is Right for AlcaLu OK, I am a little late to this game, but I couldn't help fall off my chair laughing at some of the names you mention! Quigley, maybe. Christy, you must either be joking or have no clue about her exec abilities. And no, this is not a sexist comment.
