Asked by a St. Louis radio station whether she thought Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin could run a company like Hewlett-Packard, Fiorina responded: "No, I don't.
“But that's not what she's running for. Running a corporation is a different set of things." Later in the day, when asked about that remark on MSNBC, she made the same unprompted assessment of the GOP presidential nominee. "I don't think John McCain could run a major corporation." She also said she did not believe Democrats Barack Obama or Joe Biden had the right business background either.
According to a McCain campaign aide who spoke to the Huffington Post, "Carly will now disappear," this source said. "Senator McCain was furious." Asked to define "disappear," this source said, adding that she would be off TV for a while - but remain at the Republican National Committee and keep her role as head of the party's joint fundraising committee with the McCain campaign. Fiorina was booked for several TV interviews over the next few days, including one on CNN. Those interviews have been canceled.
I love the title of the story, " McCain Camp Throws Fiorina Under the Bus."
