Carly Fiorina, and the conservative case for feminism - Washington Post (blog)

"...Fiorina's definition of a feminist is "a woman who lives the life she chooses." It's a more nonpartisan definition -- liberals would say a watered-down one -- and might be more welcoming at a time when a majority don't identify with the word but believe in equality for women.And as a political strategy goes, it's not a bad one for a long shot like Fiorina or her party. After all, she's the only major female candidate in the GOP field...." see full article

Carly Fiorina's Gender Game - New York Times (blog)
"...It's not odd that Ms. Fiorina should go after Mrs. Clinton she is, after all, the presumptive Democratic nominee. But Ms. Fiorina is clearly intent on going after Mrs. Clinton specifically for what she's trying to paint as an illegitimate focus on gender issues. I think that if Hillary Clinton were to face a female nominee, there are a whole set of things that she won't be able to talk about, she said last month. She won't be able to talk about being the first woman president. She won't be able to talk about a war on women without being challenged. She won't be able to play the gender card. ..." see full article

Carly Fiorina Is a Great Communicator - National Review Online

"...Fiorina's ability to inspire such admiration speaks to her potential as a foil to Hillary Clinton. After losing badly in her only previous bid for public office, Fiorina has emerged as a master of one of the oldest political arts: the stump speech. She's also developed a knack for turning even provocative reporters' questions to her advantage. She will lean heavily on those newfound skills while campaigning in Iowa and New Hampshire, the two early states that tend to determine if a would-be contender surges into the top tier or falls by the wayside...." see full article

Carly Fiorina Talks, Iowa Swoons, and Polls Shrug - New York Times

"...Ms. Fiorina, whose net worth is between $30 million and $119 million, has generated headlines and steady crowds of conservative voters. In April, nearly 300 people showed up to see her deliver the keynote address at the Clinton County Republican Party dinner in Iowa, twice as many as were expected. On Saturday, when she spoke at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in Oklahoma City, she was interrupted by several standing ovations.Whether Ms. Fiorina, the only woman in the Republican race, can build from her status as a crowd-pleasing speaker and curiosity into a serious competitor is not clear. But something is happening on the ground here...." see full article

Carly Fiorina Just May Be the Surprise Dark Horse of 2016 - American Thinker

"...In just a few short minutes, Fiorina manages to interweave personal stories with core values that include faith in God, limitless human potential, and the greatness of America.Her speeches don't sound like they have built-in applause lines. She simply speaks. If people clap, that's fine. She doesn't appear to expect it or revel in it.She is articulate as she speaks on a wide array of topics with impressive mastery, from the economy to national security and everything in between.There is a sense of urgency and passion behind what she has to say. And she says it in a way that is crystal clear...." see full article

Carly Fiorina: A real feminist - The Week Magazine
"...If Fiorina, who lost the 2010 California Senate race to Barbara Boxer, were simply running as an anti-Hillary attack dog, she wouldn't be very interesting. But her candidacy is much more than that. Fiorina is using Clinton's dogmatic progressivism to set up a contrast with her positions that seem to strive for a higher left-right synthesis...." see full article

Carly Fiorina's disastrous paper trail - Chicago Tribune

"...The idea that her ouster came as a surprise, which Fiorina has asserted, is in and of itself a surprise. Bruising boardroom battles. A floundering stock. And a board that wanted to limit her power. How could she not be aware that her job was on the line?..." see full article

Carly Fiorina Blames The Pay Gap On The Things That Actually Help Close It - ThinkProgress
"...What Fiorina doesn't want to see is increased regulation, and she claims that we have laws on the books today that ban gender discrimination, and if a woman is being discriminated against because of her gender, she should use the full extent of that law. But women have only won about a third of the pay discrimination complaints they've brought with the Equal Employment Opportunity Office over the last 17 years...." see full article

The Carly Fiorina Leadership File - Bloomberg View
"...To cut to the chase: Fiorina was fired from HP because she did a bad job. She also hasn't held a major corporate position since she was pushed out of the company in 2005. Fiorina is spinning a story that she was a victim of sexism at HP. In a recent interview with the Hill she wouldn't say outright that she was fired because she's a woman. ..." see full article

Carly Fiorina joins the fray - CNN

"...The former Hewlett-Packard CEO doesn't have a successful track record as a candidate; she lost a California Senate race in 2010. But her attacks on Clinton have made an impression with the GOP base, and an ally I spoke with this week says the candidate understands the odds, but begins with the strategy of doing well enough in a crowded field to make it into the final four...." see full article

Is Fiorina Out of Touch With Corporate America?

"...Fiorina, who was forced out as CEO of Hewlett-Packard ten years ago, appears to face an uphill battle in convincing voters that she really is that person any longer and especially whether she is representative of and still in step with the very business community whose values and expertise she touts as her greatest asset as a candidate...." see full article

Carly Fiorina 'picking up speed' in Iowa, GOP activists say -
"...And while she delves into social issues to voice strong opposition to abortion, she doesn't bring up same-sex marriage unless asked. Fiorina told Iowans she personally believes in the church definition of marriage as one man, one woman, but backs marriage equality for gay couples because she believes the government can't confer benefits on its citizens unequally. At Hewlett-Packard, benefits were extended to both same-sex and heterosexual couples...." see full article
