icahn ready for prime time?

Posted by andreaitis on July 21, 2008

carl icahn just played the tech version of Let’s Make a Deal.    he agreed to end his yahoo proxy fight in exchange for 3 board seats.  techcrunch has the details, of course…. but what struck me even more was that, in this extended silicon valley soap opera, carl icahn sorta looks like blake carrington from dynasty.   of course, icahn’s ego is bigger than linda evans’ shoulder pads.  and his temperament is frostier than joan collins.  but he’s got the cat fight down pat, and…well, see for yourself:
