Condoleezza Rice Is Pursuing the VP Spot


blogs.abcnews.com

ABC News' Mary Bruce Reports: Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is actively courting the vice presidential nomination, Republican strategist Dan Senor said.

“Condi Rice has been actively, actually in recent weeks, campaigning for this,” Senor said this morning on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”

Well this is interesting. I think she would make a good choice for McCain's running mate, though I still anticipate that Rudy Giuliani may end up as his running mate.

Here's another story from Reuters:
Condi Rice for VP talk persists despite denials

Really? I think its an awful choice. Anything that visually ties McCain to the current Administration is a mistake.

Who would you recommend? I still think Rudy is going to get the nod, but he's not my ideal choice. I would hope for someone like Colin Powell but he probably wouln't do it. Which makes him an even better person for it.

Pretty much all of our "choices" look like trainwrecks waiting to happen IMO. McInsane and Condi would be the perfect war-mongering team to carry on the legacy of destruction that Dumbya has instituted.

This should help offset the "Black" and "Woman" vote that the Dems currently have largely sewn up. Sounds like a good move for the Pacyderms. Personally I don't care though. My candidate was cast aside many moons ago.

Condi is a smart cookie, could do worse. Here's a thought though. There's no term limit on VP's right? Maybe Cheney will go again. If it's all fixed, as I believe it is, then he gets at least another 4 years of running the world.

I never used to be paranoid until ATS. Thanks a lot guys.

I pretty much loathe Condi Rice. She played her cards right however. Mostly anyway, except for that stumble about planes used as missles bullsnot. Does she really have an oil tanker named after her?

She'd be a very good choice, I think. She's obviously intelligent, now has a ton of experience on the international stage, and provides a good counter to the Hillary and Obama show we're seeing right now. She also provides the Republicans with a logical candidate going into the 2012 or 2016 election, should McCain win this November.

Putting Rice on the ticket certainly would throw all the demographic predictions for a loop. We already see all sorts of people jumping back and forth across party lines this time around. I've seen people who have never voted Democrat say they will this year for the first time, and vise-versa.

I have heard the same. I have heard many of Clinton's supporters would vote for McCain IF Obama got the Democratic nomination and IF Rice was McCain's VP choice.

Chevron's "Condoleezza Rice"

Condoleezza Rice was a Chevron Director from 1991 until January 15, 2001 when she was transferred by President George Bush Jr. to National Security Adviser. Previously she was Senior Director, Soviet Affairs, National Security Council, and Special Assistant to President George Bush Sr. from 1989 to 1991.


Nothing like keeping the oil in the White House, eh?

Oh dear God... that woman is the #2 position!!! That would scare the crap out of me... she's too close as it is.... she has a dark dark soul.

McCain will chose Huckabee to shore up his conservative credentials.

Don't go giving them any ideas man!
I certainly hope he doesn't, or Rice for that matter. Get em out! At least the new pile will be a fresh one.

I can't imagine a better way to send me i nto spiraling depression than to imagine the Bush-puppet's continuing presence in the inner circle of power. *sigh*

Of all those mentioned herein thus far - I would have preferred just about anyone else.

Gotta go, my soul hurts.

I'd say its a lose-lose situation for America (and the world) no matter who McCain/Clinton/Obama chose for their runningmates. All I see is the planet going to hell in a handbasket unless Ron Paul/Dennis Kucinich manage to win/rig the election and save us all.

God would that be beautiful.

I'm unclear on a few things. One, can the candidate just up and choose his running mate? Two, is there anything that prohibits a person not born in the States from carrying the VP position? If one is "yes" and two is "no", you can see where I'm going with this?

If McCain can run for President even though he wasn't born in the US, then I'd say the point is moot for a Vice President at this juncture.

I'm pretty sure the candidate can choose just about anyone they want to.
