She will have to correct the spelling of her first name, before anything else.
>> I thought she had already disavowed any desire to be Vice President.
The way she is running State — more precisely, the way they are running HER — she is not POTUS material. She should not be VP.
One of FR’s finest has responded. Here...
She is too anti-Israel for me, and it would push me away from supporting McCain for sure.
As for the suggestion; it is made simply based upon the color of Mrs. Rice's skin, not done for her abilities, nor for her positions, but simply because it fits within the liberal ‘what's right’ category. It is typical pandering - look, see, those racist Republicans didn't nominate a black for VP, but we had many running for president, we're better than they are.
Of course, unmentioned will be Dr, Alan Keyes’ name, as he has ‘unacceptable positions.’ Plus the big words he uses makes writers get cramps when copying the campaign press release.
I wonder when many will finally get tired of the shuffling of the ‘race card’ deck the liberals do over and over again? Let's ask Howard Dean, or ‘our nation's first black president’, Bill Clinton.
I also wonder what it would feel like to actually see Democrats walking into a polling booth and voting for an agenda they believe in, rather than some packaged mumbo-jumbo about ‘what's right.’
Rice’s speech at the 2000 Republican National Convention was one of the mose stirring I’d heard in a long time. She spoke about how her father had tried to join the demoncrat party in the Southern state they lived in only to be rejected, they were accepted by the Republicans and etc. She is highly educated, but sadly has been another in a long line of disappointments among Bush appointees. The State Department is no walk in the park, but her appeasement policies toward the M.E. trash is unacceptable. I always thought her high water mark was National Security Advisor. Maybe, in fairness to her, she hasn’t had the backing of the President either. Not VP material.
She is even more Pro Mooslimb than either B.O. or the Beast.
Whether thru ignorance or design (simply following orders from her boss who is hell bent on leaving the White House with a peace-in-the Middle East legacy) she (and her State Dept) are doing everything within their power to insure that Islam is "respected" and moreso, even elevated to a protected class of religions; Moozies receive more considerations that Jews or Gentiles.
I may be mistaken (though as a news/political junkie, I doubt it) but she, the State Dept. AND the White House were nearly mum after last week's attack by Islamofacist in which a dozen school children in Israel were murdered.
Then when that spineless, POS, Olmert finally responds for the daily rocket attacks, she rushes to Israel to pressure him to cease and desist which of course Olmert does.
Hey, the peace process must go on, regardless of the threat to Israel.

New envoy hopes to better explain U.S. to Muslim world
(OF COURSE THE NEW ENVOY IS A MUSLIM PAKISTANI NATIVE)
"Rice said Islam is an important part of the American fabric of life. 'Our growing Muslim population is a great and welcome addition to our country' she said at a gathering of diplomats from conference member countries at the State Department."
Michael Steele or JC Watts would be nuch better choices, in my opinion, if we “need” to run a black for VP.
It would be politically brilliant, if a litle transparent, especially if the Hildabeast steals the election from Obamahdinejad.
Might siphon off some of the politically disenchanted from the Dims.
We’ll disavow her. After becoming Sec of State, her stock dropped like an anvil thrown off the Sears Tower.
we need a CONSERVATIVE....sorry but Condi is not one of those.
If McCain picks her he is finished.
Anybody connected with the Alfred E. Newman clone in Washington is tainted.
Why? Because she is black?
She is an over rated academic with no executive level experience or demonstrated ability who has been already been promoted far beyond her competency because she is a black female.
Can anyone name one positive accomplishment by Condi since she became Sec. Of State?
Forcing a cease fire in Lebanon and helping Hamas rearm doesn't count.
Liberal, mentored by Maddie Dullbite’s evil father, member of the Council. Absolutely no.
Given her performance at State, I'd say you were right.
Successfully representing a constituency means that you can be trusted to do what you say you'll do to earn the votes of the people.
In this regard, she has less experience than Obama, and that is saying a lot.
Thanks to you two for keeping up the record on Clueless Condi....my initial reaction was to respond on CR is like a retch from curdled milk....
But of course, the dream I had last night was that I walked into one of my college history classes and found that they were taking the final exam, and I hadn't studied.
...And I was only wearing my underwear.
(So much for dreams.)
If Hertzberg is for it, it’s a bad idea.
Republicans, it's still the primary season. You still have over 5 months to select a conservative presidential candidate.

Perhaps we could have a VP that is NOT pro-Palistinian?
IMO the New Yorker is halucinating, the last thing McCain needs is a VP with liberal social positions.
YGTBSM! Not only NO BUT HELL NO!
Condi is “slightly pro-”choice” and supports the Law of the Sea Treaty, among other things, so no thanks to a Condi VP.
