McCain's technology advisers are unfortunately detrimental

McCain's technology adviser is Carly Fiorina. Remember her? She is the one who was instrumental in driving the price of Lucent stock from $80 to $0.80. Then she went on to really screw up HP - and send much of the technology development for that once great company offshore. Like any good follower of Phil Graham, she dismissed objections by saying "There is no job that is America's god-given right anymore." So when McCain says "I have to tell you that the innovation and the technology and the entrepreneurship of the world still lies in the United States." someone ought to remind him that his own key economic adviser played a pivotal role in making him wrong.
