For over three decades, Carly Fiorina's bachelor's degree from Stanford University in medieval history and philosophy has had little real-world application.
But as she mounts a presidential bid, the Republican candidate says her degree is finally of use as she considers how she would deal with ISIS as commander-in-chief.
"Finally my degree in medieval history and philosophy has come in handy," Fiorina said Sunday night, "because what ISIS wants to do is drive us back to the Middle Ages, literally."
Fiorina was responding to a question from a member of the military at a town hall in Windham, New Hampshire, who wanted to know how she could assure him that she would be serious in taking on the Islamic extremist group.
She said that ISIS is "an evil that must be defeated" and explained how she would work with allies in the Middle East who have asked for specific resources and assistance to fight the extremist group, citing the example of Turkey, which has asked for help in establishing a no-fly zone along its shared border with Syria. Fiorina said she would work with Turkey in establishing such a no-fly zone.

Don’t forget the up close & personal BEHEADINGS.
She should probably be ashamed that she has such worthless degrees.
No one expects the Carly Inquisition!
I am not a fan of Carly, but I agree with her that in general a knowledge of history is helpful in the White House. I am, however, disappointed in what that knowledge has led her to say.
She should have had some fun and proceeded to read (in Latin of course) Urban II’s Clermont speech to the assembled journolisters.
