I Have Something Good To Say About Carly Fiorina

I'm pretty sure that this is a battlefield conversion on Fiorina's part, and may not stick, but Senator Boxer has made it very clear where she stands.  From the June 29, 2010 San Jose Mercury-News:
Republican Senate Candidate Carly Fiorina said Tuesday that she opposes a ban on assault weapons and supports a U.S. Supreme Court decision this week affirming a Constitutional Right to Bear Arms. In a 45-minute question-and-answer session with reporters here, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO also repeated her backing of Arizona's Controversial Immigration law and said she would support efforts to Repeal the Federal Health Care reform measure.


  1. Didn't HP have a corporate history of supporting anti gun legislation? I seem to remember they were big supporters of the AWB. All of which probably predated her tenure, but I've never heard that it's changed.

  2. I'll vote for Fiorina, because she's not Barbara Boxer, and because incapacity as an executive is not disqualifying for a prospective Senator. But I wouldn't bet on her winning. Just wait until late October when the LA Times runs a 5-part special on how Fiorina ruined HP, and Boxer's ads with the slogan "Carly Fiorina. Wrong for HP. Wrong for California" start coming out.
