A Fiorina-Whitman tag team in California?

Could California boast  two prominent Republican businesswomen heading up its statewide ticket for 2010?

Former EBay CEO Meg Whitman has already been making the moves to run for the governorship. And now Carly Fiorina may be considering a campaign against Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), according to the San Francisco Chronicle:

Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina is making some moves that strongly suggest she's got her eye on a political future in California -- and the buzz is that it may even have something to do with that 2010 race against Democratic U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer.

Last week, Fiorina -- the former leader of the Republican National Committee's 2008 Victory drive and chief adviser to presidential candidate John McCain -- emerged, after months out of the presidential 2008 campaign spotlight.

This time, she was the new political analyst -- and a good one, we may add -- on George Stephanopolous' ''This Week'' show, talking up the economy and the Obama stiumulus package.

Now, we hear she's been added as a scheduled speaker at the California Republican Party Convention in Sacramento later this month.
