Likely 2016 Candidate Carly Fiorina Says Hillary Clinton’s ‘Character Is Flawed’
Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina joined Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” and revealed that the odds of her running for president in 2016 are “higher than 90 percent.”
Fiorina said that she’ll announce a decision in late April or early May.
Why should Republican voters pick you? Wallace asked.
“Because I have a deep understanding of how the economy actually works, having started as a secretary and becoming the chief executive of the largest technology company in the world,” Fiorina said. “Because I understand how the world works and I know many world leaders on the stage today. Because I understand technology, a transformational tool, because I understand bureaucracies … and because I understand executive decision-making.”
As for Hillary Clinton, someone she has taken shots at in the past, Fiorina said, “Hillary Clinton lacks a track record of accomplishment. She is not candid, which suggests her character is flawed. And I think now in ’email-gate,’ we not only have a situation where she’s clearly not being candid. Her saying that all of those emails she erased were just her and Bill chatting is a little bit like Richard Nixon saying those erased moments on the tape were he and Pat talking – it’s ridiculous. Of course there was more there than that.”
Fiorina said that the whole private email set-up was a deliberate attempt by Clinton to shield her communications.
“We need a nominee who will bring this up in the general election,” Fiorina said. “The reason Benghazi was not enough of an issue in the 2012 election is because, unfortunately, our nominee pulled his punches when he had an opportunity to remind the American people of the Benghazi tragedy and scandal.”
Would you even consider running as vice president in the election?
“Well, when you start asking all the other candidates that question, then maybe we’ll have that conversation,” Fiorina answered.
