McCain taps Fiorina

'Bloated executive salaries can fix the economy'

Top three mobile application threats

Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina may be warming up that vice president seat.

The Republican National Committee has tapped Fiorina as its Victory Chairman. In this role, Fiorina will travel about the country, celebrating the glories of Republican presidential candidate John McCain. Fiorina has worked for other Republican big-whigs including president George Bush and California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Pundits have long speculated that Fiorina - fired from her post as CEO of HP - will enter politics. Your reporter once asked Fiorina what position would be worthy of her talents, and she waffled on about wanting a spot that would allow her to trigger change.

Fiorina joins Cisco CEO John Chambers as prominent technology-minded members of old man McCain's power circle.

Other publications have suggested that McCain's campaign will have Fiorina talk about improving the state of the US economy to audiences around the country.

“I look forward to having a dialogue with the American people about why John McCain will be a great President and why the Republican Party has the best ideas on how to keep our country safe, prosperous, and strong,” Fiorina said.

We're guessing Fiorina won't focus on her penchant for layoffs and exorbitant executive pay.

One could imagine McCain picking Fiorina as a running mate, especially if the Democrats run Hillary Clinton as part of their ticket.®
