Steve Ballmer is vanilla and mostly an unknown compared with Oprah Winfrey and Magic Johnson who are chocolate and very well known.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"You come across (comments) about yourself and about your friends, and itís a very dehumanizing thing. Itís almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanizing thing, and then something is defined out of it. My hope is, as we get out of it, weíll reach the next level of conscience."
