Yes, that's the flub I thought you were referring to, but I'm glad to see that you mentioned she meant that for all 4 candidates (McCain-Palin-Obama-Biden). On the CNN web site, the linked headline to the article misrepresented her comment because it only mentioned Palin. I didn't see the whole conversation to understand the full context of what she was saying, but I do believe she was trying to explain it is a falacy to compare being the President of the US to being the CEO of a major corporation. So much issue has been raised over Palin's experience (or lack of depending on your view), I think she was asked if Palin could run a major corporation. And in Fiorina's response, she said no Palin couldn't, but then went on to say that neither could McCain, Obama, and Biden.<quoted text>
The Fiorina flub was her on TV saying that none of the candidates have the qualifications to run a company like HP. Including McCain.
Now I understand she's been put under wraps and is not allowed to talk with reporters, nor make appearances. I don't know if you recall, but she's also the one who talked of birth control for women being supported by insurance.
I'm sure Obama has made verbal gaffes and I'm sure someone will point it out. And I think he's far from perfect. In fact, if you found someone perfect, that's the person I wouldn't vote for because that person is not me.
But this financial episode is like a test tube for both candidates. They can screw up and it won't make a difference. But it should be telling as to how they work and approach problems. That's how I view this.
Of course, when the Obama campaign picked up on it, they left out the later half of her statement, thus distorting it. I realize that that's the nastiness of politics and that both sides are guilty of it, but it's no less annoying.
