The much ballyhooed meeting between domestic auto industry leaders and U.S. lawmakers came and went today, with the net-net being that the Capitol gang has pledged to work with the manufacturers 'as partners.'

Rick Wagoner (General Motors Chair and CEO), Tom LaSorda (DaimlerChrysler President and CEO) and Bill Ford (Ford Chairman and CEO) met with a pool of congressmen to discuss such issues as expanding ethanol's availability, pension policy restructuring, trade imbalances, and health care costs, but if any specific initiatives or resolutions from Thursday's meetings were reached, none have been made public.
