    Agreed. This is why I would like to have Roy back on the board and someone like Steve Jobs as CEO, forward thinking, wants to make a profit by creating cool innovative stuff that people want. I do think Disney needs to move backward in time a bit, not so much in terms of content, but rather a spirit of continuing innovation, and pushing the envelope in terms or immersive entertainment.

    How about Apple brings back the Woz and Pixar merges with Disney?

    I voted for Steve Jobs, but since he's already got a good thing going with Apple and Pixar, he doesn't really need to get mixed up in the mess that is Disney.

    Look at it another way. What would be the most effective way for Steve to resolve the Pixar/Disney partnership issues? Merger with Jobs left as CEO. Much stranger things have happened.

    The Results are in, day 1

    And after 24 hours, here are the first days results:

    Michael Eisner and Bob Iger did not recieve any votes.

    Roy Disney Recieved 5 votes, roughly %18.

    Stanley Gold Recieved 1 vote.

    Steve Jobs Was the majority leader, with 15 votes and %53.

    Jeffery Katzenberg Recieved 2 votes.

    Al Lutz Recieved 3, or %11.

    And 2 votes were placed for Anyone, But Michael Eisner.

    Now see, if the Disney board let MiceChat pick the new CEO, Eisner would be packing his bags before the 50th celebration started.

    Voted for Jobs, with Roy and Stanley having a seat on the board.
    Trivia: On April Fool's Day 2004, Disneyland guests found -- at the insistence of the board of directors -- the gigantic dragon featured in Fantasmic replaced with a gigantic Roy Disney (leading to a reprimand to the cast member playing Mickey Mouse when he hugged the giant instead of fighting it)

    hmmm... Out of that group...Jobs is the only choice. Roy and Stan say they don't want it, I think you're great Al, but do you *really* want all that stress?

    And well, the rest are a joke. lol

    But what about the other serious candidates? There are others being talked about (albeit not as much and they are a little unsure of stepping up till Eisner's out of the picture for good)
    What about these folks:
    Frank Biondi: (Former CEO of Universal and Viacom)
    Steve Burke: (Comcast)
    Peter Chernin: (NewsCorp)
    Terry Semel: (Yahoo)
    and
    Meg Whitman: (eBay)

    I've compiled a list with information about each of these folks if anybody is interested in the folks Wall Street has been buzzing about: The WDC CEO Race - Who's Who?

    The Results are in, day 2

    Day 2 comes to a close, as our poll continues:

    Michael Eisner and Bob Iger Continued their losing streak with no votes.

    Roy Disney Recieved 2 more votes, for a total of 7, staying steady at %18.

    Stanley Gold Holds with 1 vote.

    Steve Jobs Remains the majority with 18 votes, but slipped in the percentage to %46.

    Jeffery Katzenberg Is steady with 2 votes.

    Al Lutz Recieved another 2 votes, raising him to %13.

    And Anyone, But Michael Eisner has 6 votes for %15 percentage.

    So far the people have spoken, claiming Steve Jobs as the man to beat, as Roy Disney lingers in popularity, although concerns about his leadership vision have had people saying they'd take Anyone, But Michael Eisner. RebuildtheKingdom also brought up other possabilities, which include:

    Frank Biondi: (Former CEO of Universal and Viacom)
    Steve Burke: (Comcast)
    Peter Chernin: (NewsCorp)
    Terry Semel: (Yahoo)
    and
    Meg Whitman: (eBay)

    Who will take the title of the next Disney leader? Only time will tell.

    One of the many reasons two companies merge is leadership. Sometimes one company will "purchase" another in order to acquire its management. This could be done here, with the Disney board (the BOARD, mind you) leading a move to purchase Pixar with the intent of putting Pixar's management in charge of Disney.

    Steve Jobs is MY favorite pick, however, it's one thing to split between Apple and Pixar.. another entirely to split between Apple and Disney. But couldn't you just see Disney run by Jobs with Lassiter in charge of the studios? Or imagineering? (FYI: Lassiter is a former JC skipper)

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Post The Results are in, day 3

    Day 2 comes to a close, as our poll continues:

    Another day, another CEO...

    Michael Eisner and Bob Iger
    Continued their losing streak with no votes.

    Roy Disney Recieved no new votes, staying at 7 and %18.

    Stanley Gold Holds with with his 1 vote.

    Steve Jobs Is still the leader with 19 votes, and remains at to %46.

    Jeffery Katzenberg Was raised with an additional vote for a total of 2 votes, a little more than %7.

    Al Lutz Stands strong with 5 votes, or %12.

    And Anyone, But Michael Eisner has 6 votes for %15 percentage.

    As the number of voters weens, Steve Jobs continues to pull ahead, and is looking at a clear victory. Will Jobs be the next Disney CEO? Probably not, but hey, its fun to watch and find out.
