Carly Fiorina: The Right Outsider
It’s early in the primary process, but Republican primary voters at this point seem determined to nominate an outsider for President, in the sense of someone who has literally never held elected office. I think this impulse is a mistake, as I explained about a month ago, because it ignores the obvious fact that the most important test is how one survives becoming an insider: Basically | Read More »
Rubio and Fiorina Win
Carly Fiorina won the debate. She needed an introduction to the nation and she got it. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%, for example, should have won the Planned Parenthood argument, but Fiorina made it emotional in a way Cruz did not. She challenged Democrats to actually watch the videos and the left knows she did damage. Pro-abortion groups are already attacking her. | Read More »
Carly Is Only Going Up
Carly Fiorina was the clear winner in tonight’s debate, but it has nothing to do with gender. Yes, she was the only woman on stage, and stuck out in her blue suit, but the fact that she held her own – and then some – says much. I have always liked Carly, her strength, her sharp mind and her effective ability to communicate. But it | Read More »
Carly Fiorina’s Face
It was Rolling Stone. Donald Trump’s campaign could have attacked the integrity of Rolling Stone. After all, look at the story the magazine made up about the University of Virginia. According to Rolling Stone, Donald Trump said about Carly Fiorina: “Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?” Trump reportedly bellowed while watching his | Read More »
Carly Fiorina’s Merit is Not that She’s a Woman
I like Carly Fiorina. She is a fantastic communicator with a precise, measured delivery. She appears firm in her resolve to be a leader, and not just an entertaining candidate. I believe she is an excellent addition to the race for the White House. Her inclusion is not just a positive addition to the GOP field, but to the idea of a presidential campaign as | Read More »
The Outsider Fallacy
If the polls are to be believed, the GOP primary electorate really, really wants someone who is an “outsider” to be our nominee for President. Not just an outsider to Washington, mind you, but an outsider to politics altogether. The latest FoxNews poll has Trump in first with 25%, followed by Carson in second with 12% of the vote. Carly Fiorina checks in 7th with | Read More »
Has Trump peaked? One poll doesn’t tell us that.
The Real Clear Politics 2016 nomination poll chart appears to be showing that Donald Trump has peaked, and is on the way down. But if you dig past the pretty picture, it’s not clear that’s the case.
Carly Fiorina Speaks at #RSG15
Based on the responses to the debates last night, it appears that Carly Florida truly made her presence known in the 2016 race despite only being at the supposed “under-card” debate. Her speech to this year’s RedState Gathering did not disappoint. Check it out: As you might expect, she discusses who she has responded to the standard kind of questions any woman running for the | Read More »

As they all arrive, the debate is going to be what’s on their minds, and on the minds of their campaign staffers. Whether they did well or not, what they do here will try to build on or recover from the debates, because debates matter.

Carly Fiorina Would Like to Reclaim Feminism
I remember in the summer of 2014, in the thick of midterm election hype, Carly Fiorina addressed the supposed “War on Women” in an appearance on CNN. “A lot of women, me included, are sick of the ‘war on women,’” “‘Strong and bitter words indicate a weak cause,’” Fiorina read. “And that’s exactly right. The War on Women is shameless, baseless propaganda. There’s no fact | Read More »

Well, with most of the candidates out there and a few we’ve never heard of, let’s examine the 2016 logos on the GOP side.
