Perhaps lost amid all the recent and very loud buzz about Chrysler becoming essentially a government-free car company was news of a major management shuffle with long-term implications. They beg the question: is Chrysler's leadership becoming burned out?
It's a good and fair concern.

The stress, the dedication - they have really been paying their dues, and [Chrysler CEO] Sergio (Marchionne) may be looking for a little bit of a fresh start. You want to avoid burnout."
