Each day leading up to President Obama's State of the Union address, ABCNews.com will bring you a different newsmaker's thoughts on what "The State of the Union is …"
Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, described the state of the union as "not particularly good" and expressed her hope that President Obama uses his address next Tuesday to "strike a genuinely bipartisan tone."
"The state of the union is not particularly good. Our economy is sort of grinding along at one and half percent which is certainly not success for the American economy. We have long term structural problems whether it's lack of new business creation or education or immigration," Fiorina told ABC News.
"What I hope is that President Obama will actually strike a genuinely bipartisan tone, put forward his view of how to solve these fundamental problems, whether it's entitlement reform or immigration reform, and then work with everyone to come up with a win-win solution which will actually allow us to make some progress," Fiorina said.
