I'm hearing very strong rumours suggesting that Bill Clinton is to take over Steve Balmers role at MS.

Anyone else have info?

A place on the MS board, perhaps, but replace Ballmer? Sounds more like blogosphere tittle-tattle taking 2 plus 2 and getting a billion than anything substantiated.

I think MS know Ballmer is the man for the job. What else re-assured shareholders more than "I love this company yeaaaaaaaahhh!" :)

That would make far more sense.

And a major coup, too.

>> Bill Clinton is to take over Steve Balmers role at MS

why would Bill limit himself to a role? It just doesn't make sense; an ex-President loses a lot of aura if he takes a real job. As far as money: he has plenty, but still, he can make a lot more if he joins an investment bank and make a few phone calls a month. Maybe a board member role, or special adviser to talk to foreign leaders on behalf of MSFT--if anything at all.

Gerhard Schroeder (ex prime minister of Germany) should have read this :-)

Clinton is doing seminars and stuff like that, high priced ones obviously. He is usually at world business conferences. Wonder if he can squeeze his Microsoft commitments in :)

$250,000 a gig.

Even Bill Gates would have difficulty matching THAT hourly rate...

I think coach Bob Knight is a more likely choice. He's even more volatile than Ballmer, and his chair-throwing skills are unquestioned.

If yeh want volatile, how about Howard Dean, then? "We're going to beat Google! We'll go everywhere after them! We're going to take back the Internet! Yeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaagggggggggghhhhhhhh"

Wouldn't have done him any good, since he wasn't a "president".
