Q & A With Governor Granholm


In 2002, the Canadian-born Democrat became the first woman to be elected Governor of Michigan. Now in her second term, she is responding to tough problems -- the global financial crisis, the near-collapse of the U.S. automobile industry, a 17% unemployment rate in Detroit -- with innovative solutions: she has beefed up the Michigan film industry's tax credits and started the No Worker Left Behind program which provides up to two years of tuition at any community college, university or training program to accelerate the transition of thousands of workers into good-paying jobs.
