Gutierrez said he left Cuba as a political refugee in 1960, joined Kellogg Co. of Battle Creek, Mich., by selling cereal out of a van in Mexico City, and became Kellogg's president and chief executive in 1999. He said his experience shows him that Bush's vision of an "ownership society" is "real, and I know it's tangible."Let's see. Got a leg up during the early days of the Great Society, toiled around in middle management all through the Reagan era, and then finally got a chance to be CEO in 1999, when Clinton's high marginal tax rates were supposedly "stifling" corporate America. Another welfare state success story!
