Leadership is all about unlocking the potential in others.
My faith has sustained me through some very bad times. I've battled cancer, I've lost a child, I've been tested. But whether it's a person of Christian faith or Jewish faith or Muslim faith or other faiths, I think faith gives us humility, and empathy and optimism, and I think those are important things.
We have to compete for jobs as a nation. Our competitiveness as a nation is not inevitable. It will not just happen.
When people get to know me, they tend to support me. That's what you see in the polls.

Cara Carleton "Carly" Fiorina (born Cara Carleton Sneed on 6 September 1954) is a former CEO of Hewlett-Packard.
