Carly Fiorina in 2008: “I Have Such Great Admiration and Empathy for Hillary Clinton

[brid video=”15931″ player=”1929″ title=”Carly Fiorina in 2008 “I Have Such Great Admiration and Empathy for Hillary Clinton””]

A video from 2008 has surfaced showing Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina praising Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, stating that she has “great admiration” for her because of her achievements as a woman.

In the 2008 video, Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, announces her support for then-Republican presidential candidate John McCain, but simultaneously praises Clinton out of her desire to “empower women.”

“This is why perhaps I have such great admiration and empathy for Hillary Clinton,” Fiorina says in the video. “I have great admiration for her because I know what it takes in some small measure to do what she has done. She is obviously incredibly intelligent, focused, tough, determined, empathetic of all the tens of millions of people that she was trying to represent in her quest to become the first woman president of the United States.”

“And as a woman, I take great pride in the fact that Hillary Clinton ran for president,” she continues. “And I also watched with a lot of empathy as I saw how she was scrutinized, characterized, talked about as a woman.”
