Skip to comments.CA: Rent-a-horse joined Whitman for Fortune cover story
Posted on 03/20/2009 7:43:52 PM PDT by NormsRevenge
Former eBay boss Meg Whitman isn't really a California cowgirl, but she plays one on the cover of Fortune magazine.
When Whitman, who wants to be California's next governor, did a photo shoot in Half Moon Bay for the lead story in this week's issue, she used a four-legged prop named Brandy.
In a note at CNNMoney.com, Fortune editor at large Patricia Sellers revealed that it was a rent-a-horse that appeared on the cover and in a picture inside.
"The horse on the cover, Brandy, isn't Whitman's, but she does ride in Telluride, Colorado, where she and her neurosurgeon husband, Griff, have a vacation home," Sellers reported.
Whitman, a billionaire who has suggested she's willing to put $50 million of her own money into her campaign, isn't oblivious to the image that took another Republican, Ronald Reagan, to Sacramento and the White House.

FRom a Trojan Horse to a Rent-a Horse.
She does oppose 3 of the 6 budget measures on the next ballot however.. whatever they are. We have a measure of the month club thing here in California, who can keep up?;-)
Likely GOP gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman opposes 3 budget-related ballot measures (Propositions 1A, 1B and 1C)
... supports the other three ballot proposals, Propositions 1D, 1E and 1F.
she’s best buds with romney
and allows his presidential staff to use her california
What a difference? They was never a fee increase she couldn’t support at eBay!
Sheez! Who could've forgotten about those .. er .. THAT!
Which one is the horse...
I couldn’t stand those pictures. The stirrups are too long and Harris’ heels are not parallel with the ground. If you are going to ride and be photographed, do it right. Now my thoughts about the rider are expressed in the tagline.
Looks like we're going to have quite a lineup of candidates for Arnold the Stupid's post. I look at Whitman and see an absolute novice with liberal beginnings (New York, Princeton and Harvard) and with the faint but discernable odor of the dreaded "moderate", yet when compared with the list of losers who will be running...one must ask the question--can any of them be any worse than the "Abominator"???
If forced to vote for one of them, Campbell would pass the clothes pin test for me,, Poizner ,, ehh, sorry, Meg,,
Nayyy winnyy... sorry Willllbbbur.
If I had my druther..
Bruce Willis and Ray Haynes are my dream ticket about now.
Party on. ;-)
I must have missed something. Ray Haynes would be fine, but “Bruce Willis?” Not the actor, is it? Or are you just tuggin’ on me?
An actor has a good shot at winning here , again.. Reagan, Schwarzenegger, Bruce..
I was kidding .. but .. who knows these days.
What the hell—we’ve had Reagan and now Arnold. I think that’s enough. With Hollywood as it is today, I doubt we could find an actor without left wing puke credentials. Best to leave it be.
I sure as heck can't!!!
