(CNN)The next president of the United States must have a track record of accomplishments and challenging the status quo. Throughout this campaign, I have repeatedly asked Hillary Clinton to name an accomplishment. She has yet to name one. Note: Flying is an activity, not an accomplishment.

Where Clinton has lied and evaded in response to questions, I have stood firmly on my track record of accomplishments. I have sought out every opportunity to answer questions from the media and the American people. I don't lie about tough calls. I acknowledge them because that is what the American people deserve.
    Clinton thinks she is entitled to your vote. I am working hard to earn it.
    The Clinton Machine has decided to attack me by talking about my greatest accomplishment: shattering the glass ceiling to become the first female CEO of Hewlett-Packard, a Fortune 500 company.
    Carly Fiorina
    I started my career filing and answering the phones as a secretary in a nine-person real estate firm. Being underestimated is nothing new for me. I don't shy away from a challenge.
    I am proud of what we were able to accomplish at Hewlett-Packard during the worst technology recession in 25 years. While other tech companies like Sun Microsystems and Gateway Computers collapsed around us, we weathered the dot-com bust and came out stronger.
    Other tech companies did not foresee how the market would change and refused to make the tough choices needed to survive until it was too late. It is 15 years later and only this summer did the tech-heavy NASDAQ recover to its precrash high.
