Carly Fiorina's taking some flack today
for noting that Sarah Palin would probably be unqualified to run Hewlett Packard.
John McCain adviser Carly Fiorina said Tuesday that if Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) was called upon to run Hewlett Packard, as Fiorina did, the Alaska Republican wouldn't be ready.
"Do you think [Palin] has the experience to run a major company, like Hewlett Packard?" Fiorina was asked on a St. Louis radio show.
"No, I don't," Fiorina said without further explanation.
I see nothing particularly controversial about that. Business people are different from politicians and require different sets of skills. President Bush, with his MBA from Harvard, might qualify to run a company like H-P. Google didn't hire Al Gore to be their CEO or COO, they hired him to be a member of the board.
Needless to say the netkooks
are soiling their Pampers at the "admission".
