Carly Fiorina Wants To Be The Alternative To Hillary Clinton

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina said she is 90 percent sure that she will run for the GOP nomination in 2016. She also predicts that if Clinton faces off against her, that Clinton will be at a disadvantage.

Fiorina said, “Hillary Clinton has said it is not enough to be a woman. You have to be a woman who believes – and then she ticks off all the orthodoxy of the Democratic Party. She believes that ‘only if you’re a woman who sides with us do you count.’ Well, women are 53 percent of the electorate and I think they are ready for something different than that. I think if Hillary Clinton faces a woman opponent, she will get a hitch in her swing.” In addition, Fiorina compared Clinton to former President Richard Nixon--who was forced to resign due to his coverup of the Watergate scandal by saying, "Her character is flawed."

Before making a formal 2016 campaign announcement, Fiorina shared that she wants to be sure that she has the right support, resources and finances to move forward. Fiorina started out as a secretary and worked her way up to becoming chief executive of HP.

While HP's board of directors eventually fired her, Fiorina said “We took the growth rate from 2 percent to 9 percent, and we grew jobs." Of her experience, in relation to the office of the president, Fiorina says, “People who have been in and around government and politics for their entire lives may no longer be able to see the truth: our government must be reimagined. And if we want someone who can reimagine our government, then we cannot elect another career politician who knows how Washington works but doesn’t know what leadership means.” Fiorina plans to announce a formal campaign by early May.
