Should Microsoft buy Yahoo to compete with Google in searches?

I just saw a link on Digg that's pretty interesting. Yahoo's shares and advertising revenue has dropped but they still hold the number 2 search engine rank and the largest base of registered members so it's still a nice company. The basis of the acquisition would be to build advertising share for its MSN Money since it's growth is only like 5% compared to the 26% of the rest of the industry, but it would benefit from all the other Yahoo assets. I think it would make Microsoft a much better competitor to Google, but it would be tough to fight Google on ALL those fronts, and it would be expensive, costly at least 10 billion or something IIRC. It would be all out war, lol.

Anyways check the link out Here and Post Your Thoughts.
