Not Ready for Prime Time

I’m not a big Meg Whitman fan – seems to me she woke up one day and decided that she hadn’t run a state yet, so why not try that, even if she hadn’t bothered to vote all that often in the past.

But it takes more than tens of millions of dollars and gauzy, feelgood ads (or, for that matter, amateurish attack ads) to win an election. It takes engagement, and the scene above shows someone who is used to the protection of the executive suite.

That, and Whitman’s incoherence on taxes and budgets that goes back over a year, and the waters may get a bit more choppy for her going forward.

But I’ll settle for her having to answer some questions.
