Re: Too many domains to cover
@Technocrati- Well, she could have said, "We chose .com on purpose because I'm a president that's pro big-business." Or she could have said, "there are so many domains we picked one and what everyone does with the rest is annoying but their business." Or she could have pointed out that some of her competitors didn't buy up all their domains either.

I like that she found a way to get a little social media bump out of what was clearly stupid. On the other hand, in the end, none of it will matter as much as the record, because, as you point out, it is an interesting one to say the least.

Re: Carly Fiorina Buys Seth Meyer's Domain But Not Her Own
@zerox203- Well, there are many reasons to run for President besides becoming President. I think Bernie Sanders realizes he has no chance to win but just wants to have a bigger voice. some people run so that they can get a bigger profile for the NEXT election. Some people do it in hopes of being named the Vice Presidential candidate. 

Plus, someitmes people just emerge out of no where.

That said, I wish the election season started in October before the November election. I can't stand the endless bickering. But the technological aspects of this election cycle should be pretty interesting. Lots of big data and social media to cover.

Re: Too many domains to cover
@tom-right. I think there's no way to close all the gaps. But .org is pretty obvious. Especially since many candidates use .org as their main address. Many people could potentially just guess on the URL and stumble on the wrong thing. It is definitely a mistake, but I think they were right to laugh it off as a minor mistake.

Too many domains to cover
Even if her staff blew it by missing .org, there are still many other options for would-be critics...

You can still get carlyfiorina.website and carlyfiorina.mobi, among others.
