President But Not CEO

Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina thinks that none of the Pres or VP candidates could run a major company -- but they might be qualified to run the country. Um, no. I hate to break it to the majority of you who haven't worked for a major company, but most CEOs are as useless as FEMA during a hurricane. Here are the skills needed:

- A nice set of suits
- An offshore bank account
- Ability to weasel out of blame, preferably by means of a scapegoat
- inflated sense of importance
- no conscience or sense of ethics

I'm not advocating cynicism, just a reasonable comparison of skill sets.
