Obama’s Deal with Detroit

President-elect Obama has already weighed in more than once on his desire for a BCS playoff.  In that spirit, as part of approving any bailout for the U.S. auto industry, he should exact the follow concession:  The Detroit Lions need to give up hosting a football game on Thanksgiving.  It’s an old tradition, but come on, who really wants to waste a national football-viewing audience on the Lions?  This is a team that has won exactly one playoff game since the creation of the Super Bowl 40+ years ago.  A sad metaphor, perhaps, for what’s happened to the domestic auto manufacturers during the same era.
