Skip to comments.Drudge Exclusive: ROMNEY NARROWS VP CHOICES; CONDI EMERGES AS FRONTRUNNER
Posted on 07/12/2012 4:37:05 PM PDT by kristinn
Late Thursday evening, Mitt Romney's presidential campaign launched a new fundraising drive, 'Meet The VP' -- just as Romney himself has narrowed the field of candidates to a handful, sources reveal.
And a surprise name is now near the top of the list: Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice!
The timing of the announcement is now set for 'coming weeks'.
It was Condi who received two standing ovations at Romney's Utah retreat a few weeks ago, and everyone left with her name on their lips.
Rice made an extended argument for American leadership in the world.

OMG!! a BUSHIE pick???? DOUBT IT!!
While I don’t think her political views match mine, it would make the VP debate quite a hoot.
Wow she could still run for VP and vote for Obama like she did last time
Noooooooooo! We need West!
Romney is NOT listening. We do not need TWO RINOs at the top of the ticket. Condi was a good secretary of state...save that, or a different job, for her. This is SO exasperating!
Drudge is just guessing.
A trial balloon at best and obviously a bit hyped by Drudge. A governor is more likely.
Wow, double your Pander double your fun! Triple if you count academia.
Pray for America
NO bushie rice...rice voted communist in 2008!!!!!!!
She’s automatically the smartest of the 4. Its a trap for the left, really. They’ll call her an Uncle Tom token black, exposing them for the true hypocrites they are.
A pro-abort VP candidate? If true, the Republican Party has sunk to new lows.
“vote for Obama like she did last time”
I find that very hard to believe.
I hope you’re not spreading lies.
I respect Rice, but she probably does not share my conservative values.
I resent politicians who use “race”
in an attempt to —what? Look less white?
Leave skin color out of it and run on values.
First this—first that-—isn’t always what is best for America.
That is my initial response...subject to change.
It puts the Iraq War right back on the plate for the Rats, Mitt, don’t go there.
