[To be fair and balanced about this, please see Fiorina's web site: www.carlyfiorina.org ]
Fiorina is a whack job! Not unlike many CEOs today, whose idea of competitiveness is to offshore as many jobs as possible [thereby offshoring a large chunk of the GDP and tax base] and replace American workers with foreign visa workers. She royally screwed up HP, and purchased a sorry company like Compaq. [I recall working tech support at Microsoft in the 1990s, when Compaq engineers called to ask why their optical drive wouldn't work with Win95. I said the first step was to check their drivers. They expressed dismay as they didn't realize it was necessary to create drivers for the peripheral to interface with the operating system!? Whooooooh boy!!!!!]
