Carly Fiorina for President?



Print page

Carly Fiorina, former technology executive, is now running for president. She launched a national broadcast interview Monday morning May 4th. She believes Americans are ready for an outsider. She also was criticizing Hillary Clinton, saying that she still has much explaining to do with the attack in Benghazi, and her use of personal email and a server. Carly Fiorina also ran up against Sen. Barbara Boxer for U.S. Senate in 2010.

I think Fiorina has a lot of courage. It’s cool that she started her career as a secretary then, married a former tow-truck driver and worked her way all the way up to the chief executive of Hewlett-Packard. But her time at HP wasn’t that smooth, the value of the company’s stock fell and she was forced out of the company after a public fight with the children of the company’s founders and board members. Which kind of sets a bad image on her and makes me question if she really has the potential to take care of our country.

Its true that many Americans are looking for a “fresh face” and that many are hopeful for the 1st woman as President but Carly Fiorina does not meet many of the “informal qualifications”  that are necessary to be a successful President.
