Bobw0 asks:

Would you still recommend the conversion over the
401k? I am about 15 years from retirement.

Think through the issue of conversion very carefully as it's really not a "one size fits all" situation. Each and every case depends on a whole host of factors. For an idea of what you must consider, see my article "Convert to a Roth IRA?" at That should give you some food for thought as you try to reach a decision on this issue.
