A decade ago, Boeing moved its corporate headquarters from its home base in Seattle to Chicago. It was considered something of a coup for the Windy City. I wonder how the Obama camp would react if Boeing decided to move its corporate headquarters again. It could consolidate its headquarters with its Integrated Defense Systems headquarters in St. Louis. It could move to Houston, which has a strong aerospace tradition, and is a major airline hub. It could move to an Asian capital, recognizing that that is where the growth will be.

Just wondering.
