Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina was asked this morning on CNBC how she's different than Jeb Bush. "Everything about me is different," said Fiorina.
Asked the CNBC host, "How are you different than Jeb Bush?"
"Everything about me is different," said Fiorina.
"You think everything about you is different?"
"Well, I have a totally different experience set. Totally different experience set," said the presidential candidate.
"But in terms of your overall sort of governing philosophies?"
"Well, I don't support his notions around comprehensive immigration reform, for example. I think we have to get some basic things done right first, which we've never done, like secure the border, like fix the legal immigration system. I hink common core is a really bad idea.

Al Gore is "gaining steam" in the presidential race, stated a report last night from Fox News. Watch Peter Doocy's report on Bret Baier's Special Report:
"With Hillary Clinton's recent troubles comes renewed speculation about who might challenge her for the Democratic presidential nomination," reported Baier. "Tonight, one possibility you probably have not considered."
Speaking with Bill Kristol, longtime Bill Clinton aide Paul Begala said he wishes Hillary Clinton "had a really tough primary challenge." But, he admits, it's not likely this time around:
"On my side, you know, the press will try to pretend there's a fight. It would be better if Hillary had a fight. I'd rather she had a really tough primary challenge. I just don't see it coming," Begala said.
