    yup, she mismanaged Lucent in the dotcom bubble (scrapping the R/D focus to R/D.... and in turn, de facto ending Bell Labs legacy, home of two of the most important discoveries of the 20th century, thanks to the work of Brittain, Schockley, Bardeen, etc),

    and then she crushed HP with the compaq acquisition (you do remember that HP stock rebounded 10% within 24 hours of her firing?? LMAO!, well sadly all those she outsourced probably aren't laughing about it. oh, sorry, she "right shored" them)

    1. No she didn't.
    I gave you the wiki link. You should have availed yourself of it.

    Far more success.

    AT&T and Lucent

    She joined AT&T in 1980 as a management trainee and rose to become a senior vice president overseeing the company's hardware and systems division. In 1995, Fiorina led corporate operations for the spinoff from AT&T of Lucent, reporting to Lucent chief executive Henry B. Schacht;[11] she played a key role in planning and implementing the 1996 initial public offering of stock and company launch strategy.[12][13] Later in 1996, Fiorina was appointed president of Lucent's consumer products business, reporting to Rich McGinn, president and chief operating officer.[13] In 1997, she was appointed chair of Lucent's consumer communications joint venture with Philips consumer communications.[14] Later that year, she was named group president for the global service provider business at Lucent, overseeing marketing and sales for the company's largest customer segment.[15][16]

    In 1998, Fortune magazine named her the "most powerful woman in business" in its inaugural listing, and she was included in the Time 100 in 2004 and remained in the Fortune listing throughout her tenure at HP. Fiorina was #10 on the Forbes list of The World's 100 Most Powerful Women for 2004.[17][18][19][20][21][22][23] She became regarded by many as being the first woman to head up a Fortune 20 company, and to have overcome the metaphorical "glass ceiling".[24][25][26]



    2. That is not several. That is one (HP) that everybody is well aware of.

    And the money she made at HP was by contractual obligation. Matters not if you like that or not.

    So does Obama.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    1) Yes, she did. The fact that you don't understand the history of Bell Labs and its value to this country, is shocking.
    The irony that you are communicating that ignorance via a computer(or smartphone/tablet) , is beyond description.

    This isn't about Obama or his academic achievement as it certainly wasn't about her academic achievement either.

    It was about her work experience prior to a possible run, of which Obama's prior experience before running does not even compare.

    Your wildly inaccurate assumptions of other people are what is shocking.

    I don't have to assume anything about you; you showed it. You haven't shown 1 clue about understanding the history, present, and (lack of) future for basic research (which she killed)- the hallmark of Bell Labs, and the reason you have solid state transistors, and computer chips today. I linked to a nature article about it, you pasted a puff piece from wikipedia.

    It's clear who is more informed on the topic.

    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina said Sunday that she is almost certain she will run for the GOP nomination for president.

    Fiorina told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace that there is a “very high” chance she will run, and followed it up by specifying that the probability is “higher than 90 percent.”

    If she decides to run, Fiorina wants to wait until late April or early May to announce, she said.

    I would say most folks already know, so again, why are you asking me?
