Managers: Do you pay any attention to a resume Objective statement?

Do you, as hiring managers, give much credence to the section of a resume that is reserved for Objective? (It's the place where job candidates list things like "Good interpersonal skills" or "Proven project management skills."

We've got a discussion going on over in IT Career Management about the use of that first part of a resume that is reserved for Objective or Qualifications. For example, this is the place you'd see "Committed to superior customer service" or "Great interpersonal skills." I'd like to know if any of you, as hiring managers,  give that section of a resume much thought. Take our poll and give us some feedback.
