An interesting choice considering according to her Wikipedia entry that "Fiorina presided over a halving of Hewlett Packard's value during her tenure and heavy job losses. She was fired by HP's board due to dissatisfaction with her performance in February 2005." For those of you who remember those days, HP's stock price surged 7% on news of her departure. Is this who you'd want stumping for your presidential campaign?"
