Fortunately for us, she's back. Speaking to a St. Louis radio station today, Fiorina told the truth about Sarah Palin:
Q: Do you think [Sarah Palin] has the experience to run a major company, like Hewlett Packard?Fiorina: No, I don't. But you know what? That's not what she's running for. Running a corporation is a different set of things.
Yes, indeed. Running a company is different from being a politician. But both require a deep knowledge of issues and ideas as well as a grasp of national and international affairs that Palin has never had.
That fact alone is sufficient to disqualify her as a serious candidate for high office. Moreover, the fact that John McCain made Palin his choice is telling evidence of his own lack of judgment.
