ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the support of Eric Schmidt, chief executive officer (CEO) of Google, for U.S. Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama. Schmidt will campaign for Obama under the stump "Eric the Engineer" because Google is officially neutral in the presidential campaign. According to Schmidt, his support for Obama is a logical step from his role as an informal adviser to the Illinois senator's campaign. The author argues that an Obama administration backed by a Democratic Congress could spell success for Silicon Valley companies such as Google.
