CLOUDS IN HER COFFEE Carly Fiorina "Expect to see a lot more of her—and of another blonde, California-based, retired-CEO, McCain campaign co-chair, Meg Whitman, most recently of eBay—on the political talk shows," wrote Slate of former HP CEO Carly Fiorina back in May. They were right! We did! It was fun while it lasted, watching a so-called financial expert who ran her company into disarray—while pushing jobs overseas—hold forth on economics and business on behalf of John McCain. (She received a payout so large when she was forced out that the board of HP was sued by shareholders.) Then came her already-infamous claim that none of the candidates for president or vice president on either ticket were qualified to be CEO of a large company. "Carly will now disappear," says a McCain operative.
Oh, c'mon! I mean, how many surrogates do they have left to put on the TV? Every night on Larry King, the McCain women are getting their asses and bad talking points handed to them. Who will he have left by October?
