Newsweek: California will stay blue

Carly Fiorina and Meg Whitman will lose their political races in California next year, Newsweek is predicting.

“The senatorial and gubernatorial hopefuls have both run booming companies — Hewlett-Packard and eBay — and California could use some business sense (you can already hear the ads),” Newsweek writes. “Convincing, perhaps, but the government isn’t a business.

“Policy still matters, especially in major capitals such as Sacramento and Washington.”

Newsweek’s 10 political predictions for next year are here.

  1. Carly and Meg should have planned for their political future long ago when they were too “busy” running their respective companies and not bothering to vote for years. Carly did not even bother to register!

    This is the reason I could never vote for either of them.
