Fiorina aims to keep Clinton from playing the 'gender card'
NASHUA, N.H. - Carly Fiorina wants to block Hillary Rodham Clinton from playing the "gender card" in the 2016 presidential race.
But the lone Republican woman eyeing the White House is taking a page from the gender politics playbook herself.
Fiorina is a former business executive with limited political experience. She argues that if Republicans nominate her, it would neutralize any advantages the Democrats might get from having a woman at the top of their ticket.
While Fiorina has yet to declare her candidacy, she has been positioning herself for weeks as a foil to Clinton. She's been among the sharpest Clinton critics in the emerging Republican field, going after the Democrat's trustworthiness and her record as the nation's chief diplomat.
