    She ran both companies into the ground

    I think this is arguable, at the very least.  Yes, HP's stock price declined during her tenure, but that has to be viewed in the context of the fact she helmed the company during a recession -- and a recession that hit the tech sector doubly hard.  It seems to me that  consolidation in the PC industry was inevitable and that the merger made HP better able to compete with Dell.

    Tom Perkins, an HP board member who opposed Fiorina, has been reported as re-thinking his views as well.
