Go ahead and try to knock Carly Fiorina down -- she will just rise back up.

She was first women to run as a GOP candidate for president.

She was the first woman to head a Fortune 500 company when she became CEO and president of Hewlett-Packard (HPQ). 

And she was the first female officer at AT&T (T).

She is smart, super articulate and real. And I asked her if she had any regrets through it all.  And she had one. So watch our interview to hear what it was but let's just say I called my Mom afterwards.

You probably should do the same.
