We need to apply truth in advertising rules on political ads. Carly Fiorina ads claim Barbara Boxer is a "failed senator." Funny, Boxer has never been fired, rather she has been re-elected by the people of California since 1982. She holds the record for the most popular votes in a statewide contested election, having received almost 7 million votes in her 2004 re-election over Bill Jones.
Doesn't getting fired by the Hewlett- Packard board count as a failure, making Fiorina a failed CEO who wants to be a senator? The voters need to decide whether to elect a fired, failed CEO or an incumbent to represent them.
