John Fund‘s latest column at National Review Online explores Carly Fiorina’s impact on the 2016 presidential race.

Fiorina also seems to relish the role of being the most pointed critic of Hillary Clinton. “She tweets about women’s rights in this country and takes money from governments that deny women the most basic human rights,” she jabbed back in February when a scandal involving the Clinton Foundation surfaced. She contrasts her background as a “problem solver” with Clinton’s record as a professional politician. Her critique of Clinton’s record is withering: “I come from a world where speeches are not accomplishments. Activity isn’t accomplishment. Title isn’t accomplishment. I come from a world where you have to actually do something; you have to produce results.”

David Carney, a veteran New Hampshire political strategist who is neutral in the 2016 race but whose wife works for Fiorina, told the Associated Press: “You see some candidates when they attack a woman come across very badly, but it’s not very awkward for Carly. She seems to pull it off very well.”

Indeed, well enough that liberals have been piling on Fiorina in an energetic effort to belittle her. Adrienne Elrod, a spokeswoman for a group set up to defend Hillary Clinton, recently called Fiorina “short on substance, with sophomoric one-liners.” The New Republic noted that Sarah Palin used to be called the GOP’s “Queen Bee” and then sneered that “it seems the GOP has finally found a new Queen: Carly Fiorina.”
