Oracle (ORCL) second-in-command and former H-P CEO Mark Hurd is said to be a top choice. Dell +0.4% AH to $14.38. (previous)

    Mr. Dell should run DELL, but if he won't do it then Mr. Hurd would be a fine alternative.

    Mr. Hurd helped run HP into the ground. He might give Dell a short-term stock price boost but I question whether he can turn the company around. Still long Dell, waiting for a white knight.

    I think that the significance is simply for BX to be ready to call Mr. Dell's bluff if he indicates that he is unwilling to work with them. Dell is the right CEO.
