I met Senator John McCain last May at the Wall Street Journal’s “All Things Digital ‘D’ Conference.” He was surrounded by some of Silicon Valley’s best and brightest including Cisco’s leader John Chambers. My prediction is that high tech firms such as Cisco will benefit from McCain’s victory, and my perception from observation is that there has long been a partnership between McCain and some of the leading tech firms in both the valley and the beltway. Despite the liberal democrat stereotype of northern California voters, McCain’s pro-business, pro-technology stance is bound to win votes in Silicon Valley. Fully six times more venture capital flows into Silicon Valley than any other region in the U.S. New England and Orange County, CA follow but are a distant second and third. Giuliani spoke at the Churchill Club in San Jose a few months ago. Now I think it is McCain’s turn.
