The question on HP said Meg Whitman was the CEO instead of Carly Fiorina.

Whitman is the CEO of HP--I thought the error was in calling her a presidential candidate instead of a gubernatorial candidate, but I may have misheard the last few sentences.

Well, that's my bad for not researching. I mentioned it after the question and everyone seemed to agree that the clue was wrong, but I guess Whitman has had a lower profile since the 2010 elections.

Err yeah, I described Meg Whitman as a "GOP presidential hopeful". While this is probably true in a strict sense (certainly in 2008 there were some articles written about her being president someday), I can see why that's confusing.
