If not Pat Gelsinger or Andy Bryant (but he is a little old) then I like Stacy Smith.
Dadi Perlmutter would be my first choice.
Looks like Brian Krzanich will likely get the job though.. He is now exec VP and COO, just like Paul Otellini, Craig Barrett and Andy Grove were before taking the job.
Dadi is not a good communicator...is accent is too strong but i like him.
Mark Bohr would be my 2nd...
