Cry me a river Fiorina. Fact is that she did ship over 30,000 jobs overseas when those jobs were needed here in California. Boxer isn't any better but at least we all know where she stands. Anyways if Fiorina did not think that anyone was not going to throw up her tenure at HP she is out of her mind. This is politics and if you run with the big dogs expect the crap to fly. Fiorina showed that she is wishy washy when asked about prop 23 and then she tried to beat around the bush but was called on it. Do we really want this person as a senator? I think not. Thumbs down to both Boxer and Fiorina. Get us Californians an honest politician if one exists.

The writer of this article definitely had a bias. This report doesn't even seem like the same debate I watched.

When Fiorina was the head of HP, she had to do what was best for the stock holders. Unfortunately California jobs weren't what was best for the company's bottom line. That might be why Boeing is sending so many jobs to Oklahoma City instead of keeping them in Long Beach, CA. California is not employer friendly. If Boxer and her Cap & Trade get passed, the U.S. will send more jobs overseas.

Wow Boxer points out 30,000 people laid off by Fiorina. How many Californians are without jobs because of Boxer's policies? And, I wonder why these people had to be laid off, could it be due to the horrible business climate in CA supported by Boxer? At least Fiorina didn't ask those laid off to make contributions to HP to cover their losses. Boxer asks for more taxes from Californians after record high unemployment.

Boxer criticizes Fiorina for sending 30,000 jobs overseas. Meanwhile back here on earth the stimulus plan and other Boxer supported bailouts produced 432,000 new unemployment applicants last week. Also Barbara contiually rails against the Bush tax cuts. Did you know that she voted for them? Someone should ask her what she is doing with the 1000s of dollars it is saving her and her husband. Case you did not know they are multmillionaires.

I watched the debate and walked away feeling that it was a good debate because clearly people could see the divide between the two sides . I myself think it's time for Boxer go and have been feeling this for years . It has been frustrating watching her get reelected and wondering if California is ever going to get there head out of the sand and start to make some real change . If California reelects her then California will sink even further into it's abyss , A bottomless pit of no return where we are heading fast .

Absolutely correct. Fiorina can place all blame for her necessary business decisions squarly on the backs of the democrats.

As a Democrat, Im voting for change and its starging with voting Boxer out. Our states political climate is pathetic, too many social programs, and far too many private industry leaving for greener pastures. Or better yet a friendlier business climate that are offered by other neighboring states or countries. Fiorina you have my vote! I will give you the opportunity to make a difference.
