Carl Icahn, Sue Decker BFF

After months of agonizing introspection, it appears Yahoo (YHOO) President Sue Decker has finally gotten in touch with her true feelings about Carl Icahn. In an interview with CNBC Wednesday, Decker welcomed the billionaire backseat-driver to Yahoo’s board of directors with a big wet PR kiss. “I’m totally looking forward to meeting [Carl],” she said. “I’d love for him to learn about our business and I’d love to get his advice. So there are absolutely no hard feelings of any sort. I think the best thing I can say is that we’re moving forward and we’ll have the distractions behind us, and I want that for our employees and I want that for our company.”

Hug it out, Sue. Hug it out.
