Who's next?

Is Wachovia at risk? I gave my opinion on GM earlier. Is Ford a bailout candidate? What criteria is being used to determine whether a bailout is warranted? Taxpayers are already strapped. Can they afford a bigger tax hit? I like the concept of taxpayer-funded bailouts enabling taxpayers to enjoy any upside via warrants, but even if that best-case scenario plays out 5 years from now, will the funds actually trickle down to the taxpayers? Or will the government continue to be poor stewards of said funds?
