    Monday night's programming at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) will feature four Republicans speaking in support of presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden, underscoring an effort to reach out to moderates and undecideds who may be recoiling at the prospect of four more years of President Trump leading the nation. Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who was the last to drop out of the 2016 Republican primary against Trump, was already scheduled to be featured in Monday night's programming. But Monday morning, the DNC released the names of three more Republicans who will speak during the convention's two-hour broadcast that starts...

    Several former Republican leaders are slated to speak on the first night of this year’s Democratic National Convention, including former U.S. New York Rep. Susan Molinari, who once spoke at the Republican National Convention, and former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a frequent Trump critic who ran for president in 2016. Former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman and former Hewlett Packard CEO Meg Whitman are also on the list of GOP speakers expected to give remarks virtually on Monday night. Democratic National Committee spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa told the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery” on Monday that the theme of the convention...

    Billionaire Meg Whitman, who was the Republican nominee for California governor in 2010 and lost to Jerry Brown, is backing Democrat Antonio Villaraigosa for governor in 2018. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, “Whitman, the billionaire former eBay CEO who spent $144 million of her own money on her failed run in 2010, is co-hosting a fundraiser Thursday night for Villaraigosa in Silicon Valley.” A source close to Whitman told the Chronicle, “Meg has endorsed Antonio because, although she is a Republican, she believes he’s the best candidate for the job. Meg believes that Antonio is stronger than (Lt. Gov.)...

    Tim Kaine is swinging by the Bay Area's political ATM on Wednesday. Hillary Clinton's running mate will be attending two fundraisers in Atherton and another in San Francisco. Kaine will be scooping up cash during a roundtable at the home of Steve Spinner, an angel investor and top fundraiser in President Barack Obama's 2008 and 2012 campaigns, and his wife, Allison. In the afternoon, he'll be lunching at the home of former GOP supporter and Silicon Valley philanthropist Jillian Manus. Former GOP gubernatorial candidate and Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman will be co-hosting the event. Over the summer, the high-profile Republican...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Right. So I just saw it. I just saw it up there on CNN. They're ballyhooing and they're promoting Meg Whitman, who was referred to as "a Republican donor," and she may well be. What did she start? Did she start eBay? What did Meg Whitman do? (interruption) She's one of the founders of eBay. Okay. Yeah, and I remember that McCain had her on his... Well, I don't know if she was on his short list, but I remember one day somebody asked him (this is back in the '08 campaign), "Is there anybody out there...

    A Hewlett-Packard executive and Republican fundraiser said Tuesday she will back Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for president. Meg Whitman said she plans to give a "substantial" contribution to Clinton's campaign to make sure Republican nominee Donald Trump doesn't become the next president. “I will vote for Hillary, I will talk to my Republican friends about helping her, and I will donate to her campaign and try to raise money for her,” Whitman told The New York Times on Tuesday . Whitman, who ran for governor of California in 2010, said she doesn't agree with Clinton on many issues, but noted...

    POLITCO ^ | June 11, 2016 | Alex Isenstadt
    On Friday afternoon, at an exclusive Republican donor retreat here hosted by Mitt Romney, frustration boiled over. During an off-the-record question-and-answer session with House Speaker Paul Ryan, Meg Whitman, the billionaire Hewlett Packard chief executive officer, confronted the speaker over his endorsement of Trump. Whitman, a major GOP giver who ran for California governor in 2010, compared Trump to historical demagogues like Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini and wanted to know how the speaker could get behind him. At another discussion session during the day, which featured top Romney alumni Stuart Stevens and Matt Rhoades, Ana Navarro, a Republican contributor...

    Even though Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina previously led two of California’s most iconic technology companies, the two candidates’ business pedigrees weren’t enough to sway voters in the Golden State on Tuesday. -snip- Fiorina’s résumé often worked against her during the election cycle. Boxer hammered Fiorina about her rocky tenure as the CEO of Hewlett-Packard in TV ads, criticizing the former executive for laying off scores of employees, shipping American jobs overseas and securing a cushy severance package before leaving the company. The TV ads reopened the wounds of former HP employees who were casualties of the computer maker’s controversial...

    It was not until Thursday night's debate in Sacramento between Gov. Jerry Brown and his GOP rival Neel Kashkari that I realized what a gift the challenger has given the Republican Party. Up until then, he hadn't impressed me much. Had Assemblyman Tim Donnelly won the runoff, he likely would have delivered some bon mots on illegal immigrants that would have dominated debate coverage and sent the rest of the party into a defensive crouch. If Kashkari had amassed the type of country-sized fortune as 2010 GOP nominee Meg Whitman, he likely would have waged a big-money campaign that would...
  • Whitman: HP will enter 3D printing but not via acquisition

    Hewlett-Packard will enter the growing 3D printer market next year and will do it organically, not by acquisition, CEO Meg Whitman told analysts on the company’s fourth quarter earnings call Tuesday night. Whitman made the remarks, which echo statements she made last month, in answer to an analyst’s question about HP’s plans for this market. 3D printers can manufacture everything from toys to automotive parts. Many of us have wondered why HP, which has been a power in conventional inkjet and laser printing for decades, has let this market lie fallow – except for a past partnership with Stratasys, a...

    Raj Mathai sits down for a rare one-on-one interview with former HP CEO Carly Fiorina. Carly Fiorina's been out of the spotlight for nearly three years, after losing a hard-fought U.S. Senate race to longtime Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer. So what's the former Hewlett-Packard CEO doing these days? "I'm not doing any one thing full-time, and that's the biggest difference," Fiorina said. "I remain engaged politically, but I'm at the stage in my life now where I choose the things I can do and that's a wonderful place to be." These days, Fiorina splits her time between Sausalito and Virginia....

    Hewlett Packard (HPQ) reported its worst quarterly loss in its 73-year history Wednesday. The PC-maker suffered an $8.9 billion loss in its fiscal third-quarter, or $4.49 a share. The hit to HP's bottom line was due in large part to an $8 billion write-off of its 2008 acquisition of Electronic Data Systems Corp. (EDS) Excluding one-time charges, HP earned $2 billion in the quarter, down from $2.3 billion a year-ago amid a 5 percent drop in overall revenues to $29.7 billion. The company's major PC business slowed in the quarter as sales dropped 10 percent from the previous year. Printer...

    The California Nurses Association, which antagonized Republican Meg Whitman with its relentless "Queen Meg" parody during the 2010 gubernatorial campaign, is back for a second act - this time poking fun at wealthy people opposing Gov. Jerry Brown's November ballot initiative to raise taxes. The influential union, in a campaign to paint tax opponents as "bungling billionaires," will stage a skit on Tuesday at the St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco. The union promised reporters a "colorful event," with visuals including life rings and a model yacht.

    All Things D ^ | May 17, 2012 | Arik Hesseldahl
    The daunting task of restructuring Hewlett-Packard will begin in earnest next Wednesday when the company reports its quarterly earnings. Sources familiar with the company’s plans say that CEO Meg Whitman will discuss the opening steps of a company-wide restructuring plan that will include the elimination of about 30,000 jobs. A report by Business Insider yesterday pegged the range of cuts at HP to between 10 percent and 15 percent of its current work force of 320,000 people. But sources familiar with HP’s plans tell AllThingsD that the cuts will be carried out over a relatively long period of time, perhaps...

    San Diego – Van Jones, the former Obama Administration green czar who resigned in controversy, appears on the fast track to a political comeback — emerging as a star at this weekend’s California Democratic convention and lauded by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as a “leader of the future.” Jones, who as head of an activist group called “Rebuild the Dream” has become a leading voice of the Occupy movement, was given the star speaking slot to address hundreds at the kickoff Friday night reception here sponsored by state party chair John Burton. To the cheers of the grassroots activists,...
