Condoleezza Rice Watch: Vice President Condi?


Matt Drudge has it up and Dan Senor has the poop:

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is actively courting the Vice Presidential nomination, according to Republican Strategist Dan Senor. “Condi Rice has been actively, actually in recent weeks, campaigning for this,” Senor said this morning on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”

According to Senor, Rice has been cozying up to the Republican elite. “There’s this ritual in Washington, the Americans for Tax Reform, which is headed by Grover Norquist, he holds a weekly meeting of conservative leaders, about 100, 150 people, sort of inside, chattering, class types,” Senor explained. “They all typically get briefings from political conservative leaders. Ten days ago, they had an interesting visit. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. The first time a Secretary of State has visited the Wednesday Meeting.”

An excellent candidate but is she too close to President Bush for the GOP and John McCain’s liking? Rice is from California and would appeal to those moderate and independent voters in the Golden State.

However, Rice is pro-choice on abortion and will run into trouble with conservatives on this issue. Plus, she lacks executive experience.

Rice is an accomplished Secretary of State but Flap thinks there are better Vice Presidential choices for Senator McCain.

  1. I agree with you entirley on Rice as a VP choice. In fact, I am surprised to hear the “rumor” that she is campaigning for the job. Every time I have seen her interviewed about seeking a higher office, she has been clear that she has no further interest in politics.

    She is simply too close to the Bush admiinstration to help McCain.

  2. I want Condi Rice for Vice President. I think a McCain-Rice ticket would be perfect. I think a Vice President Rice would be a great advisor for President McCain, and if the elderly McCain died in office, she would make a great president too. She has been an indispensable advisor for President Bush and it would be a terrible thing to lose her to Stanford University. She is a very intelligent and conservative person who will put America first in decisions made. If he chooses one of these unknowns, it will do nothing for his campaign nor will it provide a quality advisor once he gets elected.
