Carly Fiorina is light on specifics, possibly funds.

Carly Fiorina, the former HP CEO and current hopeful for a Republican nomination in a race against Senator Barbara Boxer, was decidedly vague in a sit-down with reporters.

In the Wednesday chat, Fiorina called the science of global warming "less than conclusive" according to the San Jose Mercury News -- which it isn't. It's quite conclusive that we're all screwed.

As for immigration, she supports "controlling the border," but declined to discuss whether she'd support efforts to make citizens of the millions of undocumented immigrants in the country.

Excusing herself from giving a definitive answer, Fiorina announced "I think it's very unproductive to talk about single issues in isolation or to answer hypothetical questions."

It's also not clear how much Fiorina is willing to invest in her own campaign. While she made millions and millions working at and getting fired from Hewlett-Packard, she didn't disclose how much she loaned her own campaign.

She's in a bit of a pickle, wanting to run as a moderate in the general election but having to appeal to wingnut teabaggers in the primary against the likes of ultraconservative Chuck DeVore.

So for the time being, expect more vague in the months ahead.

Jackson West would enjoy the implosion of the Republican Party more if he had any faith in the Democrats having anything but corporate interests as a priority.
