I'm from the government and I'm here to help.....

As government attempts huge undertakings in healthcare, the environment, and the economy, how can we make sure that these often exciting plans will be followed through with effective execution.  We have landed men on the moon, administered the Marshall Plan, created the Interstate Highway System and achieved victory in World War II.  Yet today we look at government through the lens of Vietnam, The Iraq war,  Hurricane Katrina and Challenger.  What happened?  How has government lost it's mojo?
