Carly Fiorina Reminds Hillary: Traveling is an Activity, Not an Accomplishment

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina made headlines two weekends ago after she gave a rousing speech at the Iowa Freedom Summit, taking direct shots at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and comparing their experience. 

In an interview with Fox News' Megyn Kelly Monday night, Fiorina continued to take direct aim at Clinton and said she is seriously considering a run for the White House in 2016. 

"Like Mrs. Clinton I too have traveled hundreds of thousands of miles but flying and traveling is an activity, it's not an accomplishment and unfortunately she didn't accomplish anything as Secretary of State," Fiorina said. "Unlike Mrs. Clinton, I know there is a huge difference between terrorists purposely attacking our embassy in Libya on the anniversary of September 11, murdering an ambassador and three other Americans and a demonstration goes bad. And here we have only one person arrested more than a year later and it sends a signal to every terrorist around this world and all of our enemies, which is we're weak and it's open season." 

When asked by Kelly if she thinks she can win, Fiorina said "I don't know," but pointed out she is building a team to move forward.

"There are a lot of people out there who know that politics is desperately important but who also feel as though politicians stopped talking to them a long time ago and who believe as I do that our federal government really needs fundamental reform now, and that perhaps citizens and leaders can make that happen," Fiorina said. "We have a broad, well qualified slate of candidates that are considering this and I think that's a very good thing because I think we must win in 2016. Our country is at a point where we need to make serious changes. I don't think this country can endure four years of Hillary Clinton or Elizabeth Warren and so I think primary voters, with whom this decision is placed, primary voters need to look at the field very carefully and very seriously consider all of the candidates."
