Who is Meg Whitman?

Meg Whitman is running for governor of California as a Republican. Who is she? For one, she is a "huge fan" of Marxist ex-czar Van Jones:
It is also reported that the 53-year old e-Bay billionaire did not register to vote until 2002 and did not register as a Republican until 2007.

UPDATE: Meg Whitman, through her campaign, has responded to the Van Jones video:
“My husband and I met him and many others on a cruise sponsored by National Geographic and The Aspen Institute. He talked about supporting job growth in California, but of course I did not do a background check of his past over dinner. As these reports have surfaced, it’s clear that he holds views that I entirely reject; any suggestion otherwise is ridiculous.”
That may be but I would prefer a Governor who could spot a con-man without needing a full background check.

MORE: Meg Whitman's campaign donations have been overwhelmingly to Republicans, by $212,101 to Republicans against $10,000 to Democrats. Her contributions to Democrats, however, were not to moderates: she gave to Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Rep. Mike Honda (D-CA), Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA), Rep.Gary L. Ackerman (D-NY), and Sen. John Kerry (D-MA). These contributions all occurred before her decision to become a Republican in 2007.
