It will be better with one less competitor. More bargaining power with suppliers and unions. GM gets much needed operating cash and a chance to surive untill 2010 when all of the savior cars will be out. Camaro, Volt Cruze, ect.
GM should file for bankruptcy, restructure and come out ahead. This will allow them to dump legacy costs (pensions healthcare union contracts) and focus on building great cars at copetitive prices.
Even with a merger and government bailout I feel that GM will not exist as we know it by the end of next year. To sit here like a petulant child and scream they will be here they will be here is just blindly ignoring the facts and clining to a nostalgic view of a formaly great industry that has and will continue to fall.
Remember the sky is not falling but the DOW is and that just might take the General with it. Just my opinion, your milage may vary.
