Gerhard Schroeder is heading the transbaltic gas pipeline consortium... so why not?

There's very little chance that Clinton would become the CEO of Microsoft. It is enormously unlikely. Not only does he have no experience similar, he has zero technical credibility. It's yet another ridiculous from the get-go manufactured stories to get people hits.

At most he might be on the board of directors - ex-presidents and Prime Ministers often fill board seats.

The guy who came to Apple from Pepsi had zero technical credibility, and he did a decent job...

The trailing ellipsis is to indicate sarcasm right? :-) John Sculley is pretty universally considered to have been a bad time for Apple.

+1 to Dennis. Same goes for Lou Gerstner coming in from Nabisco and turning IBM into every other old school big company. Now instead of innovating, they basically seem to chase buzzwords. When I was there, they were going from banging the Java drum to buddying up with the Penguin. And stifling their people with a martinet culture the whole while.
