Carly Fiorina is one damn smart lady!

I saw her speak and answer questions yesterday and I was more than just impressed. Her answers to every question and followup were the best I've heard from any candidate. She was spot on, very impressive.

I know, I know, Rand Paul is God, but I've heard both and liked both. Carly isn't a politician, Rand is, Carly ran a company with more people in it than Rands state has people!

Bottom line, I think conservative ideas run pretty deep in this lineup of Candidates. That's a good thing for all us, even Democrats that don't know better.

Re: Carly Fiorina is one damn smart lady!

Was there any questions about her foreign-policy? Can't seem to find much on the web about her foreign-policy thoughts and ideas.

Yea, in particular there was a question regarding her supposed lack of foreign policy knowledge. She answered better than ANY politician running. I'm paraphrasing, but basically it went; "I've been across the table negotiating multiple-million dollar deals with most every leader of every country were allies with. In addition, I've also been across the table negotiating with most every leader of every country who's not one of our allies. Unlike most other candidates, I wasn't there for a photo shoot." She is extremely well spoken.

While politicians who've never run or managed a gas station can? She's more than qualified.

Our current "leader"couldnt run a hotdog cart.Anything with a pulse,basic math skills and a decent moral compass would be a huge success compared to the gobbler.

So a failed CEO is better than a failed politician. Glad you have such high standards.

That's one thing I would worry about. Negotiating with non allies is not the norm, nor good for the country. Just look at what the present is doing. I wonder if HP has big business in Iran? Or has in the past?

One good thing I see is McCain is on the out and may be an advisory for her.

Your words and the MSM, if you dig deeper than superficial BS, she's more accomplished than the sum of everybody posting here.

Wall Street HP lost half it's value under her and while the tech sector struggled in general just before she was fired HP did much worst than it's contemporaries. You get fired from business for one thing, losing money and she did that.

That was during the tech bubble and most companies lost everything, she leveraged the company for positions in the future and it worked exactly as planned. Most of the BOD were replaced after those times for forcing her to in directions she told them would fail (those were your Wall Street buddies).

I thought you guys all hated Wall Street, now you're quoting them to make a point? LOL.

You guys are right though, we need to get behind a straight shooter who's beyond reproach like Hillary Clinton. Someone who's never had to create or produce a single thing, someone who's every move through life was given to her and despite that, every move was filled with scandal and lies. Yea, she's our gal.
