Funny I haven't seen this going around on any of the blogs - just in National Review.

I wasn't aware that George Allen was interested in keeping her on at the State dept.

I think this is how the DUmmies have viewed the VP anyway.

I know its not spelled that way, and I'm sure he's dead too. Work with me here folks!

None of the lukewarm Republicans who have already campaigned for 08(visited a early primary state)would have a chance in Hades of defeating Rice in a primary.Among the already "announced" 08 candidates Rice would destroy them all.As a committed movement conservative,I see no real significant difference between Rice and Brownback,Santorum,or any other of the lukewarm politicians who think they should be President.The only thing that could defeat Rice in the primary is true Reagan conservatism.

Rice would lose to each and every one. I will now direct your attention to the elephant standing in America's living room:

The majority of folks in the U.S. will not vote a black person to the Presidency.

And Mike Pence isn't going to be in the race, so I will wholeheartedly support conservative George Allen of Virginia.

This started on a super far left blog a few days ago, it had a Condi as VP and Cheney connected to Abramoff angle.

I don't remember which one since it was my first time on that particular blog, and it was a link from a link from a link from a link on instapundit's blogroll. Heh, that's real useful info there.

I disagree completely. It's not skin color that is a turnoff, it's people who constantly play the victim (that is not limited to one race or gender-- see Cindy Sheehan). Americans don't want to elect a person president who does nothing but whine or divide people along racial lines in a game of political opportunism. They seek men or women of action - people who simply 'deal with it'.

In that light, people wouldn't elect a Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton, but they would elect a Colin Powell or a Rod Paige.

I agree most Americans wouldn't vote for a Black President,but they are mostly Democrats.I have no use for Allen or Rice.Both are moderates in my book.What has either ever done for the conservative movement?
I wouldn't give up on Mike Pence.I can imagine several scenarios where he will run.We already know he doesn't consider Allen or the rest conservative.If we the people MAKE PEnce run, then he will run.

Giuliani may have some ideas that are par for the course in New York but don't go well in Texas. However, he isn't the type who would try to push them on the whole country.

This is a man who totally understands the war on terror and he is tougher than the skin on Molly Ivins' behind. We'd be lucky to have him.

There are basically 2 types of Americans.
Those that live in large cities and have very little freedom. Most have to depend on the government for transportation, housing, etc. Most have a herd mentality.
Rudy screamed worse than Dean about Florida allowing people to buy guns.

Small city and country people depend much less on government and have much more freedom.

I respect your argument, but can't abide by it.
I ask folks all the time, people of different color, economic status, political persuasion etc. And I have to report that my assessment is correct. And the most critical (to put it very politely) remarks I get regarding Miss Rice are from blacks.
Besides that, I think most white Republicans are vocalizing their support for Rice only because she is black, and a female to boot.
Black folks see right thru this charade. "Well, that all sounds good, Mr. 'n Mrs. Smith, you liking Condi Rice and all, but how come you've never invited us to one of your cook-outs, out for dinner, or to a ball game together?"

I'm of the opinion, cchandler, that America is very much a racist country.
And I'm equally vehement in my opinion that as God is further ostracized from society, things will not improve.

Rice would definitely win both the Red and Blue areas of Illinois in both the primary and general.

The support (as with any winner) is a combination of many reasons including charisma, the image of a straight shooter, competence, experience, ideology, race, gender... but those last 2 are last. Remember that IL Sen Carole Mosley-Braun ran for president and got no support. So it isn't just race or gender.

The candidate who cannot put together a combination of supporters motivated for totally different reasons is a big L loser.

But unlike others who say "I'm not a candidate AT THIS TIME". Rice says a flat NO! with no weasel words to use later. Her lack of weasel words is precisely why many of her backers like her.

Both are moderates in my book

Rice is no moderate when it comes to the second ammendment, her opinion of communism, foreign policy or defense. So I presume you base your assumption on some other topic, perhaps a single issue?

I tell you, Lon Jr.'s portrayal of Larry Talbot, Universal's Wolfman, is amazing. It's so poignant and tortured, though never overplayed. Even in A&C Meet Frankenstein, he is pretty much playing it straight.

Lon Jr. was truly great actor - I always felt sorry for Larry Talbot, the reluctant monster who only wants release from his curse!
