Condi for VP?

http://www.thegrio.com/politics/cond...s-and-cons.php

Honestly, here is a Republican woman with the credentials to run the country. Forget that silly Palin woman even exists. Heck, I'd vote for Condi to run the whole show.

What, is it that association with GW that makes you say that? I'd bet she would be a far better president than GW ever was. Better than O too. She's much smarter then either of those guys ever dreamed of being.

I like her. When she first came into the public eye I thought what the heck but I've listened to her speak in several interviews over the years. Yep. I'd choose her over Palin and a bunch of other republicans any day of the week.

A lot of Brits were traumatized by Maggie Thatcher.

Being 'smart' is secondary to having a foundation of proper ideology and the willpower and commitment to act on it.

I think Condi passes those two pretty well in the context of things. She went pretty far out on a limb during the WMD thing because she believed in it. She ended up being wrong but that's part of why I like her now. She's better for the experience, IMHO.

From the practical politician viewpoint, one key thing that is going to have factor into the Republican VP choice is the need to select the person who can potentially help to deliver key voter blocks and swing states (Florida, Ohio, etc.). I don't see Ms. Rice meeting that need.

While I am not saying you are not accurate, and this is in no way directed at you personally, I do want to say that I think this sums up whats wrong with the country.

The choices should be people who are able to lead the country, not those who "can deliver key voter blocks." Until the people in this country start acting like they are part of a country, instead of part of a "voting block", little will change.
