Carlton Sneed Fiorina is a Silicon Valley businesswoman. In 2010, she ran as the Republican candidate for a U.S. Senate seat in the 2010 California elections, losing to incumbent Barbara Boxer.
In 2005, Fiorina left HP with a severance package of $42 million. This included unprecedented and extensive expenses for her personal security, including expenses to improve security in residence in Woodside. HP was later sued over the size of the severance package.
In October 2006, Fiorina released an autobiography, Tough Choices, about her career and her views on such issues as what constitutes a leader, how women can thrive in business, and the role technology will continue to play in reshaping the world.
Outside judgments on Fiorina's tenure at HP are mixed. In 2008, Infoworld grouped her with a list of products and ideas as flops, declaring her to be the "anti-Steve Jobs" for reversing the goodwill of American engineers and for alienating existing customers.
At the time of Sarah Palin's 2008 selection as the Republican vice presidential candidate, Fiorina came to Palin's defense.

Fiorina discovered she had breast cancer in February 2009 by conducting a self-examination and finding a lump. This was only two weeks after she had a mammogram. She promptly had a double mastectomy at Stanford Hospital. She describes her situation in detail at her delivery of the Weekly California GOP Address 2009-12-04.
