NBC: Why do we have to be subjected to Carly

Fiorina ???

* * * * 2008, Infoworld grouped her with a list of products and ideas as flops

* * * * The company's (HP) stock jumped on news of Fiorina's departure

* * * * She was also a "point person" for the McCain campaign on issues related to business and economic affairs (which some think the very subject that was led to his demise)

* * * * She defended the selection of Sarah Palin as McCain's running mate

* * * * The Los Angeles Times research of public records indicated Fiorina had failed to vote in most elections

* * * * In a campaign ad, Fiorina also likened Boxer's concerns over global warming to worrying about "the weather."

* * * * Her campaign ad about Republican rival Tom Campbell featuring a "demon sheep" created international, mostly negative, publicity

1. I have often wondered the same thing

Everything she touches turns to crap. I have to bust out laughing when the press talking heads use her as a "go-to" person for "insight and analysis".

2. No one would pay much attention to a person with that track record if she wasn't a woman.

 

Her claim to fame is "female CEO". That is it.

3. Nonetheless, she would have been my running mate if I had been Mitt Romney.

I think she would have had way more crossover appeal than Eddie Munster.

(Of course, the woman *is* a disaster. She bought Compaq. Compaq!!!!!)

5. So much of it is identity politics. Romney would have been better off with Rubio too.
