It certainly seems that Michael Dukakis is the right man for the top job in the free world as far as the computer industry is concerned – DEC’s Ken Olson says that as Governor of Massachusetts, he’s does nothing to harm business, which is saying a lot for a politician, while the Daily Mail team covering the Convention in Atlanta were very persuaded by his computer credentials, with Keith Waterhouse suggesting that he has the personality of a word processor and Ann Leslie hearing a delegate describing him as a Massachusetts microchip, but we’re a little worried about the other side of the ticket: the one skeleton in Senator Lloyd Bentsen’s closet is that as chairman of the Senate Finance Committee he invited the lobbyists who infest Washington to a once-a-month breakfast with him on payment of a burp-inducing $10,000 apiece – we just wonder whether the American people is ready to trade Bedtime for Bonzo for Breakfast with Bentsen.
