The new breed of women politicians just don't give a toot
Fiorina, who studied medieval history and philosophy while at Stanford (she also has a MBA and M.S. in business) also claims she did not have any passion for politics, and like Governor hopeful Meg Whitman, didn't even register to vote until after a few decades of eligibility.
Fiorina's weak stand on environment matches that of Whitman's too. She states in her OC Register column, "40,000 California farmers and farm workers in our Central Valley are out of work because we can’t find a balance between protecting our environment and protecting the economy.”
Her tumultuous tenure as head of HP and pathetic voting record was questioned at the Washington Post, and like Chuck Devore, is relatively unknown. If California consisted only of Orange County, the Central Valley, and the so-called Inland Empire, Carly might have a shot. She has been seen already contradicting herself more than once (she said spending must be curbed, also noted Obama's stimulus was too small) but everyone is looking at her ramming the head of HP into the ground after overseeing their merger.
In the early going, it appears she's going to get torn apart, but politics in California is in a desperate situation, so let us watch the bloodshed and see who comes out ahead...
