In a TV interview with CNN, Fiorina said, "(An aquaintance) saw Barbara Boxer briefly on television this morning, and said what everyone says, 'God, what is that hair?" '

She continued, "So yesterday. You didn't see --"

Then Fiorina suddenly realized she was on a live microphone and stopped.

"Early Show" Newsreader Erica Hill added, "She went on to say, 'People talk about my hair all the time." '
