Carly Fiorina masterminds McCain’s housing campaign

THE HUFFINGTON POST notes that former headmistress at Hewlett Packard, Carly “Gulfstream” Fiorina, is masterminding presidential candidate John McCain’s take on the US housing crisis.

Yet, as Huff points out, when Carly was poached from Lucent, HP paid $1.6 million between 1999 and 2003 to help her with her mortgage in what’s curiously described as a “sweat heart deal”. When she left the firm, she only got $21 million as part of her severance package.

The bog notes somewhat dissingenuously (sic) that all this dosh doen’t necessarily preclude Winsome Carly from having valuable things to advise about the sub prime market. ♥
