[As a result, Nagin himself has become part of the debate over how best to <br/> rebuild the devastated Big Easy. Critics suggest the qualities that <br/> endeared <br/> him to Orleanians before Katrina, among them his political inexperience and <br/> his <br/> shoot-from-the-hip approach, make him the wrong man for the massive, <br/> labyrinthine job ahead.
