This just in...: Carly Fiorina hospitalized for breast cancer treatment-related infection


Carly Fiorina, 2010. (Reuters/Robert Galbraith)

California Republican senate candidate Carly Fiorina was hospitalized Tuesday for an infection associated with breast reconstructive surgery this summer. A week before the election, her campaign was forced to cancel several appearances -- just as her race was tightening up against Sen. Barbara Boxer. "Her doctors expect her to make a quick and full recovery and be back out on the campaign trail soon," her rep said in a statement.

While I'm not at all a fan of Carly Fiorina, I wish her a speedy recovery and hope she has no further bouts of cancer or other diseases, illnesses, or injuries.

And before some cynic leaps in here, yes, I am 100% sincere. I oppose her *politics* but would NEVER wish this stuff on her, nor on anybody else.

I would echo the sentiments of MekhongKurt1. While I do not agree with her politics either, I do hope she does recover to be 100%. No one should suffer from cancer or cancer-related illnesses.

This is a cheap attempt on Fiorina's part to tap into a sympathy vote and get free publicity. Nothing this grotesque mess does is not calculated. She needed a day off and is making it work for her.
