If you thought that the drama would simmer down with the election now behind us, you would be wrong. Well, at least in the search world. A recent article from The Washington Examiner reports that some of the big wigs from Google and Facebook are hoping for a seat on Obama’s cabinet. The article states the following:
“As President Obama plans to reshuffle his cabinet, the job of running the Treasury Department could fall to Google’s old CEO, Eric Schmidt, or Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg… Obama aide Pete Rouse is looking for ‘a Fortune 500 CEO’ to work under the president.”
The article continues with some additional interesting points about Google’s relationship with politics. Makes you wonder about where data from Facebook or Google is meshing, or will soon mesh, with politics.
