Today, Margaret Cushing “Meg” Whitman, announced her candidacy for governor of California.
I’ve been looking forward to this for almost a year. I can’t remember where, but early in 2008, I remember reading/hearing someone mention that she’d make a great conservative candidate for California’s governor. Being a native Californian, I’m excited for the chance to return California to the right side of things.
Meg is a Princeton and Harvard grad. She’s a genuine business person, having risen through the ranks of many great American companies; Hasbro, Stride Rite, Walt Disney Company, and Procter & Gamble. Her greatest contribution to the American economy was the 10 years she led eBay. Yeah, you read that right. One of the Republican candidates for governor of California is not only NOT a politician, not only a woman, but she also lead an awesome tech company. That just makes me all happy inside.
