The face of leadership

By Tom Quiner

Carly Fiorina is class.

Donald Trump isn’t. Mr. Trump generally proves it every time he opens his mouth. He drew particular attention to his boorishness by mocking Carly Fiorina’s appearance last week.

Ms. Fiorina struck back with a zinger of an ad, which I’ve posted above.

Way to go, Carly! Great ad. And for the record, I like her face.

I predict this week’s debate will mark the zenith of Donald Trump’s popularity. He has no where to go but down.

    Love it!  Thanks for posting it.  I read her brief interview in the Register Sunday.  She will not be forced into name calling and bad mouthing.  The more I see/hear, the more I like. Hope you and Karen are well!

      I agree. Great to hear from you.

    Carly Fiorina continues to prove herself to be a class act. Donald Trump continues to prove he is not.

    She’s bright and feisty and makes lemonade out of lemons, lol. I love how she has learned to put her best face forward. Leadership is an art and a science and she has honed her skills well. I give her credit for putting herself out there!

    As for her record at Hewlett Packard, former executives have defended Carly’s work vigorously. One board member who had actually voted to fire Carly said that he now regrets that decision. The following account at tells the story that didn’t make the news shows:
