Former eBay CEO Meg Whitman is already part of a tiny, select club: she’s one of only four self-made female billionaires in America, and one of only two who made her cash without the help of her husband (Oprah’s the other, natch).

Now, in a rare TV interview, she’s hinted that she’d consider joining another elite group: female vice presidential hopefuls.

The failed California gubernatorial candidate told Sacramento’s KCRA3 that she’d be happy to take on just about any role under “longtime friend and mentor” Mitt Romney, should he be successful in his 2012 bid.

"self-made" ? No way. She was lucky to be in the right place at the right time. eBay was already successful when she joined, all she did was slightly slow down the success and growth rate. But the disaster than was eBay Japan, was entirely made by her, that's true.

Just what we need, a many-times-over millionaire and a billionaire taking orders in Washington from people just like them who paid for those million dollar campaign ads.
I would vote for any candidate that received zero big-business Wall Street dollars, because only they would be uncorruptible.

Great idea.
With Meg Whitman as VP, no one would ever try to kill Romney.

"I would vote for any candidate that received zero big-business Wall Street dollars, because only they would be uncorruptible."

Last guy that fit that description was Abe Lincoln...and we all know what happened to him.

Hek, I hadn't thought of this idea! This could save the U.S. taxpayers by not having the secret service guarding the president. :lol:
Bring on Meg, just don't allow her to make any decisions and travel at all times with Romney!

Hey, they say she spent $160 million on that race
for Govenor that she lost so maybe as long as she
is so rich she will take the job for free.

Just out of appreciation and a desire to serve all
the past and present Ebay'ers of course.

VP salary of $230,700, :D nice budget relief

yeah, I brought that up to my congressman... "I noticed that of all the things on the table to be cut was not your salary or benefits package. Why not? you want to cut Social Security... CUT YOUR SALARY FIRST! You live on $1200 a month... AND NO MORE! You want to cut Old Age pensions... YOU GIVE UP YOUR SALARY and Benefits FIRST!!"

If Meg lands the VP slot she could probably get a certain close relative of her's a top level position with the International Monetary Fund.

Since the top frog raped that hotel maid the job is unfilled and that relative seems to have the required social experience to be a shoo in. :twisted:

You would think this lady would fade away after the 150 million dollar drubbing she took in California - and that was her personal stash! How many different ways can we say - move on, you're not wanted here! Of course, she feels as a billionaire she can buy her way into anything...

That image, alone, is sufficient to make one hide their eyes.

I know a lot of family/friends in CA. It's sad to hear how many people revere and love her. Like she's a saint or miracle workers.
