While Hillary Clinton was busy running for president in New York, Mitt Romney held a fundraiser in Park City, Utah where he reportedly said that he wouldn’t be surprised if the GOP turned out to be “the party that has two women on the ticket.”
Romney’s dream ticket of ladies includes Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO who is currently polling behind “WHO?” and “HUH?” The Guardian points out that Fiorina is so behind in the polls that:
“...she is in danger of missing out on the first Republican debate, which will be hosted by Fox News in Cleveland on 6 August and will only include the top 10 candidates at the time.
On current polling that would include – should he announce on 16 June that he is in fact running – the property mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump.”
Clearly Republicans aren’t very excited about the one woman in their primary field. But can you really blame them?
Romney pointed to New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte as a possible running mate for Fiorina. While Fiorina-Ayotte might be the GOP’s sincere answer to Clinton’s rhetoric on “making history,” it looks like little more than a limp attempt to point at some token women and say “we have them, too!”
