True Madness Requires Significant Intelligence
This is not our standard BP thread.
I do not know how many of you follow business but the CEO of HP, Carly Fiorina, was fired today.

I was never a fan of hers.

I believe she got the job partly becuase she was a woman.

HP's financial results have sucked and again she was kept on longer than any other CEO would have been allowed.
She forced the merger of HP and Compaq, two companies whose business was based in computer hardware, a business of diminishing returns.

I wonder how this will impact the chance for another woman CEO?
I wonder were Carly will end up?

Mods move this to the political forum if you think that is right.

Calmer than you are.
She wore this to her first interview, and it was misinterpreted.

My guess it that like anything else negative, it's an opportunity. It's too bad that women are still not fully respected in the business/professional world, but that's the reality. I'm teaching my girls now, as I'm sure you are your's, that they have to gut it up and be better than others, especially boys. If it doesn't actually take the extra effort, no worries, a little work never hurt anyone. The next group of women approaching Carly's level will just have to demonstrate that they aren't Carly. It's not right that men won't have to go to that level, but that's the reality.

as one Analyst put it (this a my version, might not be a direct quote)..."you can cut the head off a snake, however that doesn't solve the problem. It just leaves you with a snake without a head..." lol I lost it when I read that. Lets just say she isn't thought of too highly...
