McCain Taps Carly Fiorina To Woo Clinton Backers

HangingChad writes "Presumptive Republican nominee, John McCain, enlisted the help of former HP CEO Carly Fiorina to woo Clinton supporters. An interesting choice considering according to her Wikipedia entry that "Fiorina presided over a halving of Hewlett Packard's value during her tenure and heavy job losses. She was fired by HP's board due to dissatisfaction with her performance in February 2005." For those of you who remember those days, HP's stock price surged 7% on news of her departure. Is this who you'd want stumping for your presidential campaign?"

Why would a Clinton supporter support McCain instead of Obama? Clinton and McCain are so different on so many issues when she's compared with Obama.
