How do you make sure your company is fondly remembered by the next president of the United States of America? Simple; invite them to the Googleplex, make them feel very special, and give them free lunch and M&Ms.
Ok, so I’m being flippant, but Google’s still using the Googleplex as a means to make nice with the potential next American president.
Five White House hopefuls from both Republican and Democratic parties have stopped by Google’s Silicon Valley campus in recent months to face questions and endear themselves with voters in the country’s most populous state.
Google has an impressive list of those that have spoken:
- Ron Paul
- John McCain
- John Edwards
- Hillary Clinton
(no idea who the fifth is)Bill Richardson
The debates are aired on YouTube and the questions come from Google employees. Google gets up close and personal with the next president, while the candidates get to show they’re hip by visiting Google.
