Bill Clinton As Microsoft Honcho?

The new year has been filled with so many rumours – this one from Andy Abramson takes the cake. Steve Ballmer shall give way to Bill Clinton as Microsoft president. Andy writes, "sources near Microsoft headquarters report that over the past few months the ex cigar smoking prexy has made trips to Microsoft headquarters and has been interviewing for the top slot as the company looks at ways to transform themselves for the future. Given the global implications of technology, having a leader that is an ex country president would be massive".

My Take: I highly doubt it – but it could be the case that microsoft may have clinton on the board and in addition use him as an honorable mascot for various initiatives - Clinton is extremely popular outside the US. Today the task of running Microsoft and maintaining its pre-eminent posture may be equally tough or perhaps lot more tough than being the president of the united states or being the ex-president. Any way steve ballmer’s role and success shall come under lot more public attention. Even the charismatic Bill gates role as at the chief software architect has been under constant public scrutiny. Bill Gates is shrewd – that’s why amongst other reasons he got in Ray Ozzzie to do larger things inside microsoft - would we see some change around Ballmer’s position – we have to wait & see.
