Tech CEO Won't Be Running for Gov.

Founder and CEO of Cypress Semiconductor, T.J. Rodgers, doesn't seem to have a very high regard for politicians. From an interview in the EETimes Online (Hat Tip: Tom Elia at The New Editor)

EETimes: If you ran for office--say, governor of California--what would be your first piece of legislation?

Rodgers: Let me reject the premise of your question. I have a real job, I create real wealth, real people work for our company. I would never, ever swap my job for a job where I make my living taking money from other people. I would rather be unemployed, literally.
