The reason why Mr. Stonecipher was asked to resign has been beaten to death. I'm curious as to whom will become the next permanent CEO (considering they've named James Bell as interim chief executive).
Messrs. Mulally of Commercial Airplanes and Albaugh of Integrated Defense Systems are being named in the media as possibilities. But there is risk that the odd man out if either is selected will bolt from Boeing. If so, what are Boeing's other options? Would Mr. Bethune consider a return? Would that make sense?
