In the banana-republic politics of America's public companies, anything less than a 99 percent "yes" vote is somewhat embarrassing. Yahoo CEO Jerry Yang should not congratulate himself on the result that 18.2 percent of shareholder votes were withheld from his reelection to the board. Still, it's good enough that Yang can safely attend the Olympics in Beijing — and stick around as Yahoo's caretaker CEO. At least until March 2009, that is, when former AOL CEO Jon Miller's noncompete expires, and the talented Internet executive can take the helm of Yahoo unencumbered by old ties to Time Warner.
