Most of my supposed differences with Jeb came down to "we don't know what Jeb thinks on this one" (even though they should with his rather lengthy tenure and speaking tours). A few times I scratched my head thinking "I could have sworn he thought differently from the quiz makers' viewpoint of his positions...but okay." At least they correctly identified me as an authoritarian.

    Anyway, for the most part I'm going to side with the establishment over the base any day of the week.

    Paul, Christie and Cruz have ZERO chance of garnering the nomination. You should try another poll.

    OK...

    Carly Fiorina forced out at HP - Feb. 10, 2005

    The Inside Story Of Carly's Ouster - Businessweek

    She was fired primarily because she halved the stock value. The Street's view of the Company was tarnished. The CEO's job is to enhance shareholder value; she did the opposite. To paraphrase John Belushi from Animal House: "... face it, [they] f'd/up; they trusted her.

    The company DID NOT double its size during her tenure. The fact that HP has twice the revenue today as it did in 2000 is not impressive in the tech industry; in fact, it means HP underperformed.

    "...During her tenure, the market value of HP halved and the company incurred heavy job losses.[24] The HP Board of Directors asked Fiorina to step down in 2005, and she resigned on February 9, 2005...."

    "....The move came after she was unable to build the Palo Alto-based company into a reliable profit machine with the broad heft to challenge IBM and Dell at the top of the industry. ...."


    Carly Fiornia's chances of being the President of the US fall somewhere between 'nil' and 'none'. She has NOTHING to run on except that she is rich. She just wants another severance package.
