Carly Fiorina, who didn’t come close to getting the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, says she might try again.
She spoke Thursday with Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business News:
Well, we’ll see. Look, it was a privilege to run for president. I do believe in a citizen government. I think we need more citizens to step up and run for public office and so I certainly would consider it but you know you have to have the right context, the right opportunity, so we’ll see. I will remain politically engaged for sure.
Seriously, why do they all have to talk like this? “Citizens government,” blah blah blah blah. I’d feel better if she’d just say,
I’d feel better if she’d just say, I want power, dammit, and I didn’t get it last time, and I’m gonna try again. And by the way, screw you. Or at least, I think I would be the most effective person to . . . and then add whatever she wants to do. Although she may not know what she wants to do. Which leads us back to the first statement I suggested.
Doesn’t she understand that Trump got elected because he wasn’t making people keel over listening to platitudes?
Anyway, she got fired as CEO of HP, and failing your way upward is always a good way to advance in Washington, so maybe she has a chance.
