I go along mostly with Fuskie but would add that Eisner's biggest problem after Wells died is he seemed to consider every number 2 he had afterwards (and there were a few) except Iger to be a threat to his position. I believe that Katzenberg was the only one who even had close to the ambition and at that time even Katzenberg had to realize what Eisner apparently didn't. The Eisner was the number 1 CEO in America (image and pay and admiration) and wasn't going anywhere. I think even in Katzenberg's case he just wanted to be Eisner's replacement.I believe it was Eisner's paranoia about everyone trying to replace him after Wells that led to Eisner's downfall and the downfall of Disney as it lead to losing a lot of talent. The irony of course is the one guy who Eisner didn't think was a threat was the guy who actually did replace him.Moe
