The Fiorina who orchestrated the unsuccessful HP merger with Compaq? The Fiorina who halved HP's stock price during her tenure? Whom InfoWorld dubbed the "Anti-Steve Jobs" and Portfolio named one of the worst American CEOs of all time? Who initiated the sleazy investigation of board members suspected of leaking to the media? (Although, in fairness, much of the blame appears to lie with her successor as chairman.)
And while I like Tom Campbell, didn't he lose by like 17 points the last time he ran for U.S. Senate?
What the heck is going on in California?
