Have you spent any time working in corporate America for large companies?
Having both lived in a van down by the river and been part of the corporate nightmare, I’d be tempted to choose the van…
Last time around, that’s what I thought about Jon Huntsman (competent, at least), but he didn’t last very long.
It’s a sad state of affairs when mere competence is such a high bar that no one reaches it.
It makes one nostalgic for alternative candidates.
It’s called the Meritocracy, people! Now she’s poised to do to America what she did to HP.
55 gallon drum of lube… now more than ever.
BLECH! I worked for this asshat at both EDS and Perot Systems - now owned by HP and Dell, respectively. He makes Fiorina look like a pussycat.
Such a brilliant tech mind. So brilliant she forgot to register all the domain names she might need.
Even though I wouldn’t vote for her, and I doubt she’d make it to the general election anyway, I’m glad to see it become normal for women to run for president.
This is one of the most insidious and successful ideas the new Republicans have foisted on the voting populace: that a country needs to be run AS IF IT WERE a business.
The fact that she can’t run any businesses (other than into the ground) doesn’t help, of course.
Everyone at HP hated her. Sometimes, it’s just you.
I also blame her for pretty much creating the “CEO as celebrity” thing.
Overpaid assholes who don’t know anything about the company they are running. And they don’t even create shareholder value. They create a brand, sell snake oil, then get huge pay days to leave the place in semi-ruins…
Or complete ruins.
As if that were a bad thing. Actually, that would be great!
I bought a 15C for $125 in 1985. Sold it circa 2002 for the same amount. Grad school, desperate for cash. I bought a 12C at a yard sale for like $1 but later discovered that they don’t fetch that much.
You know what’s odd? Every four years they look for a new face to basically put a new shade of lipstick on the same pig. They’re basically looking for someone with Obama’s oratory skills and cool, but then they start talking and it’s all downhill. Rubio, Jindal, you name it. The next great hope. They keep talking about bold ideas, a new direction, blah blah, but there’s absolutely nothing new. I hope they keep failing.
you missed “a lot of”.
at the least, there are way more Ds than Rs, and even a lot of the libertarian techies would rather vote D than R if those were the choices.
For the fact that most West Coast tech workers are Democrats? Or that they want to win? Because the fact that they are Democrats (or Liberals) is true by a wide margin.
It makes about as much sense as saying that someone who’s won a lot of money playing poker should be running the casino.
Did the Bobs say Florida?
