well I am a middle aged female who has not been sold to either side yet. I didn't care to much for Hillary either, but It was mentioned tonight on
the DNC that Obama needs to try to win that huge group of people who were going to follow Hillary who happen to be this large middle age female voter
My choice that I would love to see, however I think she has voiced that she is not Interested in running for an elected office is Condoleezza rice.
I love this woman! she is strong, Independent, smart, shes a diplomat, she has come from a very poor and rough background and whats really interesting
is that she and her family were originally democrats but changed parties because the dem's would not allow her father to register to vote back in the
day in Alabama, but the republicans would allow him to register, so he became a republican. with this being said, McCain is a pretty liberal
republican, and he can swing his opinions around pretty freely, i think she would be a great VP for him, because she does have a lot of compassion
and care for others.
I think she would be able to work with the democrats on issues and help avoid stalemates, since she makes a living at diplomacy. she also has a
background in business, she helped get stanford university get out of its $20 million dollar deficit in the 90's, so she definetly has a business
"I'm very proud we're fiscally sound now," Rice said. "Even after we had already been through $40 million-plus of budget rejection under
[former Provost] Jim Rosse, who had started this process . . . we still had $20 million to go and there wasn't much low-hanging fruit left," she
recalled. But she moved the university to "revenue-constrained" budgeting meaning you've got to live within your means and went through with
additional cuts. Such action "does mean that people get laid off, and that's not easy," she says.
As a woman voter I would vote the McCain/Rice ticket in a heartbeat, even though i don't plan on voting for McCain at the moment.
below is a link to condi's wikipedia page, its very interesting.
