    Please bring my home state back from the brink of obliteration; thanks to the extremist left. The "Hollywood" group has destroyed my great state, and this has carried over to Oregon and Washington. Hence why the rest of the nation calls us the left coast. We have destroyed ourselves thanks to the socialist left. We must return the west coast to greatness, or everyone will continue to leave California, and move to Arizona, and Texas. While I do agree that both of these states are great states, they are capturing our industries due to the stupid mistakes that our liberal politicians have continually pushed down our throats. Let's bring our state back from death!

    So conservative voters in CA elected a fired ex-CEO! What does that say about their judgment? Enjoy for now, Carly, because in Nov. you'll be looking for a job. Of course you have that $42 million golden parachute you ripped from HP! What is wrong with voters?

    Didn't she get fired from HP? Why would anyone want her in charge of anything? Let alone, Senator of the United States...
    She got so many things wrong during the 2008 Election Cycle, McCain's Campaign had to shut her up...

    Like it or not (and I'm a Democrat who doesn't like it), Boxer will win in November. Once again the Republicans have reached into the bottom of the barrel to find someone to run against Boxer. Maybe it's just that Republicans secretly like Boxer.

    While Fiorina is a high profile name because of her Hewlet Packard ties, what the people of california want is somebody who will stand up for the common man and that is what Sen. Boxer has been doing. Carly Fiorina's record at the computer company speaks for itself and I believe the people of California will stand with Boxer for her relentless fight for the common good.

    I can't believe my fellow Californians would vote to put someone who was CEO of Hewlett Packard and ran it into the ground to be part of running our country. She was incompetent running HP and will be incompetent running our country. Obviously people didn't understand she was fired from HP for being incompetent.
