"[Carly] Fiorina said, 'I come from a world where titles are just titles, and talk is just talk. It's only in politics where titles and words mean a lot. In the rest of the world, it's actually about what have you done, actions speak louder than words." - Jan Hanchett, Breitbart, May 27, 2015. Here is the article.
Earnest, but not too intense, mature-looking but not appearing old and with the confidence of a survivor (cancer), Carly Fiorina is getting attention. Her persona is very different from what she presented as a corporate executive and when she ran for the U.S. Senate in California.
Her number-one weapon is the same as Harry Truman's: plain speaking. In itself that makes Hillary Clinton's verbal machinations seem like something we don't want more of. Mmmmm, we might be thinking: Maybe we can trust Fiorina.
The Fiorina show, embedded in simplicity, is catching fire. She was the Wow in Iowa. And there is electricity in her media interviews. She seems to be engaging the reporter, such as Andrea Mitchell, in a conversation rather than trying to prevent real talk.
Campaign 2016 is getting interesting. No surprise, the conservative Drudge Report is giving Fiorina top billing.
