Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, who has never held public office and was fired from her HP job in 2005, is considering a run for president. And why not?
Fiorina has experience running a firm, HP, now ranked 17th on the Fortune 500 list, and ran a credible campaign as the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in California in 2010.
There are some two dozen potential candidates in the 2016 Republican presidential field, but Fiorina is the only woman so far.
Fiorina has been turning up on lists of prospective GOP candidates for months, but the Washington Post reported Wednesday that she is now actively exploring a run.
