With Nothing Else To Stand On, Carly Fiorina Launches Presidential Bid By Trampling On Hillary

Carly Fiorina makes her candidacy announcement all about Hillary Clinton.

The words “girl fight,” may sound crass but this is what CNN anchor Carol Costello feels the presidential fight between Hillary Clinton and Carly Fiorina is all about.

Republican Fiorina, a former Hewlett-Packard exec, not only entered the presidential race for the 2016 U.S. elections, she also entered with guns blazing, aiming at former Secretary of State and the Democratic front runner Clinton.

She doesn’t believe Clinton is fit for the White House.

To be exact, Fiorina believes, "She doesn’t have a track record of leadership or trustworthiness.”

"She’s not the woman for the White House," the Republican candidate adds. "She peddled a fiction about [Benghazi, Libya] for a month, she hasn't been transparent about her server and her emails, and now we see now all of these foreign government donations to the Clinton Global Initiative."

“Mrs. Clinton, name an accomplishment,” Fiorina is also known to have said at the Conservative Political Action Conference earlier this year. “And in the meantime, please explain why we should accept that the millions and millions of dollars that have flowed into the Clinton Global Initiative from foreign governments doesn’t represent a conflict of interest.”

Not only that, but as if to drive her point home, she started the video announcing her bid for the presidential campaign with footage of Clinton announcing her own run. The video shows Fiorina switching off Clinton’s campaign announcement and saying, "America's founders never intended for us to have a professional political class."

Fiorina may not be a likely candidate to win the GOP nomination, but her attack on Clinton is bound to go down in history.

If she makes it, it would be thrilling, to say the least, to see a Republican female candidate (wow) and a Democratic one pitched against each other.

However, if she wins in November 2016, she would not only be the first woman elected president of the United States but also the first breast cancer survivor to assume the position as well as only the third U.S. president to have won the office without first having held some other elective office.
