Carla Fiorina is a big John McCain supporter and adviser who was forced out of her office heading HP. (They just lost over 25,000 jobs by the way)

Earlier today she said this about Palin:

Carly Fiorina, a key surrogate for John McCain on economic issues, said on Tuesday that Sarah Palin does not have the experience needed to run a major company like the one that Fiorina formerly headed.

"Do you think [Sarah Palin] has the experience to run a major company, like Hewlett Packard?" asked the host.

"No, I don't," responded Fiorina. "But you know what? That's not what she's running for."

I was watching MSNBC when Carly tried to clean that one up by saying McCain wasn't qualified either. She lumped in Obama and Biden with this statement also which is off the wall. Saying a person could run the country, but not a corporation is ridiculous.

Obama's statement on John McCain's top economic adviser Carly Fiorina:

"If John McCain's top economic advisor doesn't think he can run a corporation, how on Earth can he run the largest economy in the world in the midst of a financial crisis? Apparently even the people who run his campaign agree that the economy is an issue John McCain doesn't understand as well as he should," said Obama campaign spokesman Tommy Vietor.
