The Early Debate: A Breakout Moment for Fiorina?
It's too soon to make any solid predictions about which candidates will benefit from the early debate featuring the GOP candidates who didn't make the cut for the primetime debate later tonight. But based on some instant reactions, it appears that Carly Fiorina has been turning heads of viewers:
Carly Fiorina won the ‘Happy Hour’ debate. By a lot.
Fiorina Wins First Fox Debate
That of course is what Fiorina did while head of high tech giant Hewlett Packard. Boxer has taken full advantage of that with a hard hitting attack ad which continues to run statewide. Boxer uses Fiorina's own words to point to the former CEO's decision to move work overseas. Boxer's tag line... as it has been throughout the campaign... has been "I want to see 'made in America' stamped on our products".
For some reason Fiorina has not been very good at responding to that attack. During their lone face-to-face debate she seemed to semi apologize for having to make the "very difficult move" of outsourcing some of HP's work. She has yet to address that attack ad head-on with one of her own.

I recorded the debate for my husband to watch later. The first thing I said was, if you want to skip candidates, be sure to watch Carly F. and Rick S.. In my opinion they did the very best. My husband watched all the candidates and ended up saying, yes Carly was the best in the debate.
I wanted to add this without reading any comments or even the OP. I did not want what others had to say to sway what I said here.
So I agree with the title of the post.
She certainly has more gravitas than Hillary and a much more likeable persona.

I thought Jindal did great, as well...but, overall, Fiorina ran away with it. She is definitely Presidential material.
I'd love to watch her wipe the floor with Hillary.
