Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett Packard CEO, has barely thrown her hat in the ring and movement feminists are already wrinkling their noses at her. Her track record at Hewlett might well be open to attack. But it would be a big mistake to dismiss her just because she happens to be a conservative. The fact of the matter is that she is an intelligent, savvy and strong woman who connects with women voters.  That's because when she speaks about women's issues, she speaks in a way that real women might find much more authentic than the leaden pieties of feminist darling, Hillary Clinton,  notes Reason Foundation Senior Analyst Shikha Dalmia.
