Carl Icahn and Southeastern Asset have created a shortlist of candidates to replace Michael Dell should their bid for his company (DELL) succeed, Reuters reports. The list bears a strong resemblance to the one former bidder Blackstone created. Oracle president Mark Hurd is on it (even though he claims to be uninterested), and so is former Compaq CEO Michael Capellas, ex-IBM services chief Michael Daniels, and H-P PC chief Todd Bradley. Icahn has already declared "Michael Dell will not be running the company" if his bid wins out.
