The Inside Story Of Carly's Ouster - Businessweek
I am not sure why she wants her record at HP skewered, as it undoubtably will be. She is going no where, but to embarrassment. She is not a serious candidate.
Not as knowledgeable as most on Fiorina's record, though the bit I caught of her on one of the Sunday TV shows, she seemed pretty good (in terms of speaking and such).
Still surprised by Ben Carson's career achievement/records, being I recall him being a total nutjob.

You are right in that Ms. Fiorina was not the CEO of Luscent, and in all fairness the telco tech-bust that started early with Lucent did cascade to the other telco & telco infrastructure providers over the next several years.
But where I do disagree is with your relatively passing assessment of her poor performance at HP. She was there I believe 6 years, and in those years HP was all-over the map in acquisitions & divestitures, and I really don't recall any positives, but many rolling disasters. She was forced out of HP mid-decade, and subsequently forced out of the industry - the latter is an extremely telling consequence. And quite honestly, if you Google lists of the top recent worst corporate CEOs, you'll find she's as likely as any to be on it - another telling sign.
But you are right, it will be interesting for her voice to be heard, though there's far more qualified & successful tech & corporate CEOs out there, in my opinion.
I cannot see myself voting for her due to her poor record (irrespective of her feasibility.
Edit: After a reread of your reply after posting, I'd like to compliment you on your insight & historical perspective of the AT&T/Bell Labs/Lucent (Murray Hill NJ) compendium, for lack of better words. Pre-divestiture BellCo/Bell Labs really was an amazing entity - the gave us the transistor for chrissakes, which made everything we do possible. What '82 started, became even wilder in '96, as can be seen by Lucent.
