Last week, former President Bill Clinton visited the Googleplex in Mountain View, Calif., insiders say, causing employees to clamor for a chance to meet the infamous and well-loved glad-hander.
Clinton may have been invited to the company's headquarters, which is being relocated across Highway 101 to the site of Silicon Graphic's former campus, after he met with Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page in Moscow in October.
...[others] to visit Google include Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Steve Young. Former Vice President Al Gore, recently named to the board of Apple Computer...
Like him or hate him (and let's not get in that here), Clinton is a smart guy and I'd love to be a fly on the wall just about anywhere he goes. Especially places like the Googleplex.
"Larry and Sergey are definitely on the who's who power list these days," said one source close to the company.
That must drive the other Bill nuts; he only gets visits from Ashcroft. ;)
Nothing mixes better than money & politics.

oh, as in Gates? Looks like to me, they just don't advertise the fact. When you look at who bank rolled who in the last election, it is clear that redmond took a highly proactive roll.
He's gotta be itching to get into something challenging again. I can't imagine the book-and-speech circuit is all that entertaining over the long term. I'm sure he keeps his eye out for new business opportunities ...
Come to think of it, this might be good for the nation...as Google's algorithm seems to be based more on positive than on negative feedback. The web might accidently end up focusing on the candidate's position rather than attacks on their opponents. (Network TV tends to focus on attack ads.)
