Carly Fiorina: Is She America’s Next Millard Fillmore?


From George Colony, chief executive of tech research firm Forrester, judging Carly Fiorina’s tenure as head of Hewlett-Packard:

I’d put her at the top of the bottom third of C.E.O.s.

Good enough for me! In round numbers, this means she’s another Millard Fillmore. I suppose this also means we’ll soon be getting a rash of conservative essays telling us that we really need to reevaluate Fillmore’s place in history. Also, I guess I can expect some flak from residents of Buffalo and from fanciers of the Whig Party. Bring it on.

But that’s enough about Carly’s business record. How about her political record? She does have one, you know. In case you’ve forgotten, here is Carly’s greatest claim to political fame. Fast forward to 2:20 if you just want to see the good part.
