What Icahn may try to do

Henry, have you considered the possibility that Icahn may negotiate with Yang to have one or two of his guys on the board thereby obviating the need for a proxy fight? Seems like Icahn is in touch with Yahoo based on his comments yesterday and this sounds like an amicable solution instead of a nasty proxy fight. Also both Yang and Icahn, their public spat notwithstanding, seem to be on the same team in terms of objective - selling to MSFT in the mid-thirties, with valuation guarantee. Both seem to understand MSFT's desperate need for YHOO. Icahn emphasized this as one of the big reasons that he got involved.
