Carly Fiorina, hmm...

She was the CEO of Hewlett Packard, cost thousands of people their jobs and had her ass publicly throw out in an atmosphere of incredible acrimony. So, she was a failure.

In 2008, she spent much of the Spring and Summer lobbying pretty intensively to be John McCain's running mate and was passed over...for Sarah Palin. So, she was a failure.

In 2010, she ran for the US Senate in a year that it was VERY beneficial to run as a Republican/teabagger and she got her ass kicked. So, she was a failure.

Gee, that's certainly a mighty impressive resume to recommend her to be the first woman POTUS. In a related development, I've recently acquired a bridge in Brooklyn that I'd be willing to let go of for the right price. Just come on down and see me at the Richard M Nixon Used Car & Snake Oil Emporium!

PEACE!

1. Mark my words, she'll be the first to leave the race.

She's a loser & a twit to think her past failure will not be used against her.

10. I think either she or Carson will be first out.

Isn't it bizarre that ever since George W Turdhead the standard of "greatness" for the Republicans/teabaggers is a lifetime of failure?

PEACE!

Offshore Outsourcing: Can China Steal India's Thunder?


HP today shared details on six countries that will become its global delivery hubs for enterprise services. In this Q&A, CIO.com gets the lowdown on where jobs are being added and eliminated, lock-in concerns and the future of HP services.

By Stephanie Overby Follow
CIO | Nov 10, 2010 7:00 AM PT

HP today revealed further details of its previously announced $1 billion investment in offshore outsourcing, selecting six countriesóBulgaria, China, Costa Rica, India, Malaysia and the Philippinesóas its global delivery hubs. Those six spots are "best for our clients and best for where our markets are headed," says Robb Rasmussen, VP and general manager, Best Shore, HP Enterprise Services. (Best Shore is what HP calls its global services delivery strategy within HP Enterprise Services.)

The company, which acquired IT service provide EDS two years ago, maintains that the restructuring will involved a total of 9,000 layoffs over the next two years as well as 6,000 new hires.

CIO.com spoke to Rasmussen and Jeff Womack, VP, Best Shore enablement, about HP's increased focus on cost cutting and offshore delivery, its pursuit of domestic business in emerging markets, and the criticism that HP doesn't adequately value the IT services business.

CIO.com: Although these six hubs are not all new to HP, you will be staffing up in these locations. How many and what types of professionals are you hiring in each country?

Rasmussen: We did have a presence in these hubs already, but not at the scale we currently have or with the government approvals and tax benefits. We are aggressively hiring and building them out today. We don't disclose [employment] numbers at the location level or the "best shore" level.

These six hubs are all large campus-like facilities, housing IT outsourcing, business process outsourcing and applications capabilities. From an enterprise services perspective. HP also has other needs for work done offshore. Take the case of our Cyberjaya, Malaysia location where we have opened a state-of-the art global delivery hub with thousands of employees that do global delivery work on behalf of our clients. Our CIO Randy Mott will also have cadre (in Malaysia) that will maintain applications for HP. Our CFO will build out financial functions there as well.

Thanks, HP!

I don't like to call human beings "monsters," but some sure do behave monstrously and are paid handsomely.

16. That is a real accomplishment. Second place to Princess Sparklemoose.

 

What kind of accomplishment I dare not speculate; I don't need that kind of brain pain.

6. What is her play anyway?

I assume she thinks her name anywhere on the ticket could bring 55 California electoral votes to the repig side?

A woman VP candidate to counter Haillary and a California repiglican to take a crack at the 55 votes?

Just trying to figure her play.

She's about as likable as a gut full of pinworms.

15. Especially since she now lives in Virginia

 

http://www.democraticunderground.com/1251406380

With big business in California eyeing Jeb Bush, the Bay Area's libertarians leaning toward Rand Paul and progressives and women backing Hillary Clinton, it's no wonder Fiorina relocated to Virginia to make her unlikely run at the White House.

9. She's not clown car enough for the GOP ticket

I understand she's trying to be the boring Mitt Romney of the race, but honestly I think they go full crazy this year. Half-ass crazy hasn't worked so full crazy is the only option left.
