That’s Why We Have Joe Biden, After All

If Steve Jobs dies any time soon, will the board of directors at Apple prop him up and carry his corpse around like Weekend at Bernie’s? At this point, I think they’d have to, in order to preserve shareholder value. This is the direct result of not-good leadership by Jobs. Seems to me that if Jobs were doing a good job as a leader, Apple would be in a strong enough position to continue as a viable company in his absence. No one, not even the guy at the top, should be indispensible — and it’s the responsibility of the guy at the top to see to it that this is a reality.
