Carly Fiorina, like some of her fellow neocons, has the ability to take something good and make something bad out of it.
In her case, it was Hewlett-Packard. Her mismanagement of the company, including the questionable acquisition of Compaq, is legendary.
Fiorina fought with Walter Hewlett, son of co-founder William Hewlett. Under her leadership, Hewlett-Packard’s stock price plummeted. After her departure, it rose, and, due to the hard work of her replacement, Mark Hurd, the company is viable again.
Fiorina also engaged in an illegal espionage campaign against the board of Hewlett‑Packard. This, again, is so typical of the neocons: the excessive abuse of power and authority!
After her departure from Hewlett‑Packard, Fiorina served as an economic advisor on the failed McCain-Palin campaign.
