Damn Guiliani stole my idea!
Say some guy you’ve only worked with for 143 days is angling for the CEO spot where you work.
What would you really think?

UPDATE– good comment:
Realistically, I would stay out of the way in the expectation that he’ll be shown the door because of the people he’d be ticking off. But if he did end up as CEO, that’s when his failure would start. He’d be the “change agent”, but if he ever tried to do anything he would get no real support and just a whole lot of foot dragging or outright opposition. He wouldn’t know what to do about it and eventually leave to spend more time with his family. While I’ve never seen anything quite like the Obama rise, similar scenarios do play themselves out in the business world all the time, and they always end ugly – for the business as well as the new CEO.
