    Do you or do you not realize that she got the HP gig because of her success with AT&T and Lucent?
    If you can't recognize that, something is wrong.
    Do you or do you not realize that she was repeatedly promoted during her tenure with AT&T and Lucent.
    That doesn't happen at that level without success.
    To say she wasn't successful when they recognize her success is just dumb.

    No I am shaking my head at your continued false claims,

    slapping my forehead,

    and sighing.


    There is nothing really to learn in either one.
    The fortune opinion piece just supports the known information that she was successful at Lucent.

    But it is funny how you decry factual and sourced information from Wiki as a puff piece, but are more than willing to accept "Whatever the exact extent of Fiorina’s role," as gospel to fuel your biased filled opinion of her. D'oh!

    A "whatever" means absolutely nothing.



    The wsj piece?
    Nothing.

    It clearly states the following.

    The probe focuses on whether Lucent improperly booked $679 million in revenue during its 2000 fiscal year, which ended Sept. 30, according to people familiar with the investigation.

    [...]

    Carly Fiorina, now CEO of Hewlett-Packard Co., and formerly head of Lucent's global-services business and in charge of world-wide sales, left Lucent in July 1999, shortly before the beginning of the fiscal year that is involved in the continuing investigations."

    That booking does not fall under her purview. D'oh!


    For the bs you provided, you deserve another double D'oh!

    I doubt you know much about the high tech industry, business, the stock market or what qualifications are necessary for the Presidency.

    Why not watch the interview and then give your critique. Fiorina likely GOP presidential candidate, attacks Clinton

    Most don't win it the first time.

    Re: ‘Higher than 90 percent’ chance Fiorina will run for president

    Interviews with close to a dozen current and former HP employees reveal that nearly 10 years after being forced out of the firm, Fiorina remains a deeply polarizing figure. Her tenure, which coincided with the bursting of the dot-com bubble, was fraught with layoffs, leadership transitions and a controversial merger with Compaq that pitted Fiorina against members of the Hewlett and Packard families in an ugly public feud.

    Now, Fiorina's public flirtation with a presidential campaign is reopening those old wounds and inviting new scrutiny of her management skills, which she is selling as one of her top assets.

    Jason Burnett, the grandson of the late HP co-founder David Packard and a member of the board of trustees at the Packard Foundation, once HP's largest shareholder, said in an interview that Fiorina shouldn't work at any level of government.

    Yes, that guy isn't the least bit biased against a Republican politician, and we should take his word for it. Good enough for me!
