big deal. it was a merger of two huge companies and why would you keep people that have multiplicative roles.
Now after that...the decline of the company...that may be different. But it probably declined similar to other firms like IBM. It takes more that just the pres. of the company to turn it around (or make it tank).
How many people here have even come close to running something as large as HP. And the media thinks that she should have kept everyone. yeah right. The company would have tanked even quicker.
As far as being potentially POTUS. She has some good ideas and some not so good. Folks in the USGOV want to try to run things like a business, and yet still use the same financial tricks as they used when it was merely a government. You can't have both. Maybe some of her policies would work. Probably can't do worse than the current Pres or any of the current folks in the Senate or House. But I don't expect folks in the UK to understand our politics any more than I understand theirs. So a lot of this is probably moot
