Dear senators McCain and Obama: When one of you is sworn in as the 44th President of the U.S. next Jan. 20, you will inherit many problems and an even greater number of challenges. U.S. competitiveness falls into the latter category. Though we tend to compartmentalize things -- such as looking at Afghanistan, Iraq, the financial crisis, the environment, education, taxes, Medicare, Social Security, etc. as separate items -- action on every item on your agenda will be limited by America's...
