I should have had a “Meg Whitman”

What John McCain said last night. She has been a director since March 1998, and continues to serve in that capacity. Ms. Whitman joined eBay when it was a small auction website with 30 employees and revenues of more than $4 million. She ranked No. 361 on Forbes’ 2007 list of the richest Americans, with an estimated net worth of $1.4 billion. The company now has 15,000 employees globally.

Last September, Whitman switched her party registration from “decline to state” to Republican, according to records in San Mateo County, where she lives. The source close to Whitman said she had made the change so she could vote for Romney in the Feb. 5 Republican primary, which is closed to independents this year.

She did her undergraduate work at Princeton and later earned a master’s degree at Harvard Business School. Among Whitman’s many accolades in recent years, The Wall Street Journal named Whitman one of the 50 women to watch in 2005 and 2006; Fortune consistently ranked her among the top three most powerful women in business; and BusinessWeek included Whitman on its list of the best business managers from 2000 through 2004. Whitman is also one of the few women to have been consecutively ranked (2004 and 2005) among the world’s most influential people by Time Magazine.

The decision for Palin over Whitman is interesting, but not a surprise. It convinces me that McCain will surprise most people with his decisions. I do like the “bucking the consensus” manner he shows often but still he is joined at the hip with Bush and Global Corporate slavery.
