Cash-rich Obama Buys Yahoo

Outbids Microsoft for Internet Giant


Flush with cash
after a deluge of online donations, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) stunned
the business world today by outbidding Microsoft for the Internet giant


The purchase of Yahoo! is believed to be the largest acquisition of
a multibillion-dollar company ever by a Democratic presidential
candidate, industry experts said.


A spokesman for Microsoft at the company’s Redmond, Washington
headquarters acknowledged that the company was “disappointed” to lose
Yahoo to Sen. Obama, but added, “We can’t really be mad at him, because
we love him so.”


The news of Sen. Obama’s $48 billion offer for Yahoo sent a shudder
through Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY)’s campaign, which for the past six
weeks has been subsisting on Ramen noodles.
