The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

She stands no chance. She has no political experience. She’s vulnerable because of her experience in the private sector (fired as a CEO at H-P). Her national name recognition numbers are very low. She hasn’t raised enough money. She might be a good VP choice, but president, nah.

Those are just a few of the comments that one hears when Carly Fiorina is discussed. And yet, Carly Fiorina is worth mentioning as one of a number of serious, thoughtful, and qualified GOP candidates for the 2016 presidential nomination.

I think it's time for a woman to lead this country, but that woman MUST NOT be a venal, corrupt, poll-driven, unethical, dishonest member of the political class who has accomplished little of substance in over 30 years of politics.

It’s time for a woman leader who can string together a series of extemporaneous paragraphs that all have substance, who doesn’t dodge hard questions, who has had distinct leadership and organizational experience, who is a critical thinker. Carly Fiorina is that person.

If you have the time, I’d recommend, CARLY FIORINA UNCENSORED, a long, but very worthwhile video:

After watching, even if you disagree with her on some issues, it's hard not to be impressed by this woman.

Nowhere is it written that a candidate must be a voter’s ideological clone, but he or she must project a level of thoughtful leadership on important issues that will bring this country back from the damage visited upon it after eight years of Barack Obama’s presidency.

It is highly unlikely that Carly Fiorina will make the final cut and rise into, say, the top three contenders for the GOP nomination. But it would be a very good thing if she did.
