Carly Fiorina – The one to watch at tonight's debate

Watch carefully. This debate could easily become the Donald and Carly show.

I have been a fan of Carly Fiorina since well before she decided to run for President. You will note below in the Disclosures Section I have contributed to her campaign.

Some of the pundits are already saying this will be Fiorina's one chance to shine, but I think there will be even more opportunities. Fiorina like the other Republican candidates continues to walk in Donald Trump's shadow.

If the public is really ready to put an outsider in the White House, Fiorina's steady and consistent approach to the "Summer of Trump" may be much more than a single debate appearance.

In her role at Hewlett-Packard, Fiorina has sat across the negotiating table from people like Trump, and she knows how to deal with them. Note how the other "professional politicians" stumble and falter as they try to deal with the Donald, Fiorina brushes off an obvious attempt to rile her up with a steely eyed look into the camera and a simple "I must be getting under his skin."

That's how you deal with the Donald.

Don't let this back and forth between Trump and Fiorina fool you. There is a lot of respect from both sides of the table. Both are big deal players.

Remember Trump said he wished Fiorina had negotiated the Iran deal.

Fiorina does not need to score a Donald knock-out punch tonight, in fact that might just be a bad thing. I suspect Trump may take a gentle swipe at her or maybe even offer a Trump apology and let Carly go after Clinton.

For now if Carly can come out of this debate in third spot in the polls or maybe even pass Carson it will be a big win.

Watch carefully. This debate could easily become the Donald and Carly show.
