So cold:

BP announced Tuesday that Robert Dudley, an American, will become the company's first non-British CEO on Oct. 1, when he replaces Tony Hayward, widely criticized for his handling of the Gulf oil spill.
They should have gone all the way and replaced Dudley with a black American. That way would have made the corporation's propinquity with the black American president impossible to contest. That way would have made it even more difficult for the black American president to do his terribly popular tough talk thing.
