Like everyone else, Eastwood has the right to change his mind I suppose. All the candidates do. Most everyone I know has changed their mind. Its just human to alter your judgement on issues when presented with (additional/better/verified) facts.
Equally important, perhaps more so, is I didn't get that Eastwood was talking about the management. To me, it was the "people of Detroit".... the workers.
Maybe I'm just naive.
