The rest of the GOP pack is a bunch of people who have been politicians for most of their life.
We could still see the godfather's pizza guy, and Trump keeps teasing us about planning to run as well. We also have Rand Paul, who is definitely running and was busy doing non-government stuff before running for senate. And don't forget that the last president from the GOP - as much as they encourage us to forget him - had more years of experience in business than in government.
Fiorina does kind of stand out as someone who has led a large company. Which would be better for her if her leadership wasn't absolutely terrible.
Don't forget, though, terrible leadership in business generally ends up ranking as "above average". HP does still exist as a company, so she did vastly better than a lot of other CEOs who drove their companies straight into the ground. Also remember that both of those strategies generally warrant multi-million dollar bonuses.
So yes, I am the POTUS. I read slashdot regularly. And I am looking forward to collapsing - like a lawnchair - repeatedly to GOP pressures over the next 2 years.
Granted, your newest one in here - that facts themselves are just democrat conspiracies - is quite a doozy - but I know you have more up your sleeve yet. Come on, tell us how this speech was itself an impeachable offense!
On a more serious note, the religious grandstanding within your party is in some ways similar to the sunni-shia conflict in Islam. You have a small loud faction that are dedicated to spreading their preferred message - and supporting their declaration of themselves being the best adherent - while most people could really care less. The problem though is that much like the sunni-shia conflict, your conflict gets more news than the millions who don't make a huge fuss over it. In the end you end up giving everyone else - including those who have no preference in the religious front at all - a black eye.
