Jim Calhoun, UConn Coach

I'm thinking he's not a Democrat. Good for him!

I sure wish a few corporate execs would stand up to Congress like this. The idea that the government should set salary caps, for instance, is absolute crap. And Calhoun makes a perfect point...he brings in $12 million in profits to UConn. If you pay $500k for a CEO of a $500 million business, you're gonna get crap leadership. CEO's that can run that size of a business are worth far more than that. But that's my opinion -- and my opinion doesn't count any more than the government's opinion on this subject. The STOCKHOLDERS get to make this decision.
