The Walton's will choose whomever will do what they tell him to without thinking too much. That is how the got the current CEO Mike Duke who was been a consistent failure as a leader well before being named CEO. The Waltons want followers not leaders - they have many executives that fit that description. Sounds like they are making the moves for the coming days when the ugly facts found during the ongoing bribery and criminal investigations begin to spill out in public. A good many of which will center around the then president of Walmart international being asleep at the wheel as usual - that would be current CEO Mike Duke. Yep I would get him on his way before that news hits too. McMillon isn't dumb enough to follow blindly - Simon is absolutely dumb enough.
