IBM’s CEO at the White House with President Obama

I was relaxing one evening at my hotel in Barcelona, watching CNN, when all of a sudden I see Sam Palmisano, IBM CEO, alongside US President Barack Obama. I read on our corporate intranet that Palmisano presented his remarks on the economic stimulus plan to the White House, had no idea he actually met with Pres. Obama.

IBM CEO, Sam Palmisano, participated in a roundtable discussion of business leaders with President Obama to discuss the economy. Sam was also asked to give a brief speech.
My colleagues Todd (Turbo) Watson and Adam Christensen already wrote about this, with links to the video from CNBC and the transcript.
