Carly Fiorina launched her bid for the presidential run in May. Ever since, she became the first female candidate of the GOP for the 2016 electoral run.
Whether she has what it takes or not, and whether she will be able to make it to the GOP debate among the leading candidates, that is still to be seen.
For now, the former chief executive of Hewlett-Packard is trying the waters and focusing her criticism on main Democratic contender, Hillary Clinton.
Previously, the GOP female candidate has never took the helms of any political office. And Carly Fiorina believes that can only turn things in her favor as it is exactly this new perspective and approach that the American people needs.
In stark opposition with what she calls a ‘professional political class’ vested in following self-indulging privileges and narrow interests.
Nonetheless, Carly Fiorina has been through the fires of two political campaigns. In 2010, running for the California Senate she came behind Democrat candidate at the time, Barbara Boxer.
Also, two years earlier, in 2008 she was the adviser of Mr. John McCain who lost the presidential election to current President Barack Obama.
It is this track of losses that is being held against her in the Democratic circles. For someone that has no political experience according to the Democrats, Fiorina is showcasing impressive courage.
The immediate goal of Carly Fiorina is to enter the GOP primaries debate. According to the standards set by the host of the debate, Fox News, only the first ten Republicans will be allowed to take the stage in Cleveland, August 6th.
Although boasting confidence that she will be joining that stage, Mrs. Fiorina found herself at a mere 2 percent of Republican votes in a Des Moines Register poll conducted this weekend. While sufficient for assuring equal grounds with fellow contender John Kasich, Governor of Ohio, many are left wondering if that is sufficient.
For the record, Fiorina did take up a few places higher than Bobby Jindal, Governor of Louisiana, Lindsay Graham – Senator of South Carolina or George Pataki – former Governor of New York.
The leading figures of the poll were Scott Walker, Governor of Wisconsin, Ben Carson, Rand Paul and of course Jeb Bush.
Therefore, it is only fair to ask. What are the real chances of Carly Fiorina as the only GOP female candidate in the 2016 presidential run? Some argue that she is playing on the gender card for now, without having a real, accountable hold of the political seat she is hopeful for.
Yet, Fiorina is at this moment following the choir of GOP voices that are harshly criticizing the main Democrat candidate, Mrs. Hillary Clinton.
Repeatedly, Carly Fiorina raised questions on the trustworthiness of Hillary Clinton. In her own words:
“I take no delight. Hillary Clinton has demonstrated over and over again that she is not transparent. She will clearly be the Democratic nominee and somebody must take the fight to her”.
The GOP runner added that if we look at Mrs. Clinton’s previous record – former senator, secretary of state and of course first lady, it clearly stands out that she is immersed in a professional political class that does not hold the people’s interest at heart. Rather the interest of that same class.
Reactions from the Democratic National Committee were not tardive in slamming the reverse arguments to Carly Fiorina. As former chief executive of HP, the business records left as legacy are not the highest point of pride.
The plunge in stock prices, clearly revived after Carly Fiorina left the company, make testimony for the Democratic National Committee arguments.
From this race, Carly Fiorina is convinced she will emerge a winner. Being aware of the difficult challenges that lay ahead, she is not holding back, the GOP candidate says.
And that will is motivated by wanting to challenge the status quo in the White House as a final goal.
