Eric Schmidt and Craig Mundie

You wouldn't use the word politician to describe Schmidt (Google's CEO) and Mundie (chief research and strategy officer for Microsoft), but both are advising President Obama as part of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology. Schmidt has donated more than $250,000 to Democrats and $40,000 to Republicans.
