No. The absolute last thing in the world that we need is for Romney to be perceived as being the delayed third Bush term.

Bringing in Condi would make it Obama vs Bush again......does the GOP really want to go there?

Yes, she knows foreign policy and Willard is ignorant in that area.

Why not choose Condi? Nothing changes, and she has no influence once elected other than an odd vote here or there.

I don’t think it will happen. I saw Condi on TV recently saying she was not interested. Political campaigning is not her thing. I don’t think she’d mind being SoS again though.

Got to say that a lot of people on FR will work to destroy whoever the GOP selects and thereby insure an 0bama victory.

I’m not convinced that such a ticket would be seen by the average “independent” as Bush’s third term.I think most of them would have a fair amount of respect for her.You’ve gotta give her credit for one thing....she hasn’t written a “tell all” book as some have.That suggests loyalty and class to me.

My reaction is: Do anything that helps defeat Obama.

Having a woman and black on the ticket may be appealing to the “independents” who don’t really think much beyond appearances.

Condi is smart and appealing and has experience as SoS.

If Hillary is the surprise VP with Odumbo, then Condi would be a nice foil.

The VP can’t do much harm to the administration and may help win some votes. We conservatives at this point just want the Loser out.

Will Condi remind people of the Bush years? Maybe, but I wonder if the Bush years are looking better with the results of disastrous Obama policies taking hold.

If Obama starts war with Iran in October, attacking Rom as the third term of “warmonger Bush” may ring hollow.

But, this guy argues against it: Anyone But Condi http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304050304577375851104232184.html

Agreed and voted likewise!

Bingo! As much as I like Condi, and I do, she’s too close to Bush and thus the establishment wing of the Republican Party. No. If Mitt gets elected, I am sure there is a cabinet post with her name on it, but not VP. Not this election, anyhow.

Allen West or Newt or Alan Keyes

Paul Ryan would be excellent too but we need him more where he’s at right now.

Wonder if this is a trial balloon? I don’t think they’ll make a final choice until they have some idea of how the pick will be perceived.

Personally, I’m tired of “historic.” She’s not conservative, as I understand conservatism and should something happen to Romney—guess who’s next in line? That choice just ain’t satisfactory!

IIRC, Condi has said on multiple occasions she has no interest in the Vice Presidency.

You can't be serious. "Bush/Cheney" is the very first thing every true independent in America is going to think of when they hear the name Condoleeza Rice.

If Romney is so dumb that he's willing to run as Bush redux, we may as well just go ahead and forfeit the election right now and give Obama his second term.

Unless Mitt gets that 3AM call that it’s his time to pack his bags and go away to rule Kolob... so to speak.

No one ever does until they’re asked ;-)

I like her, and while that isn’t popular here I think she’s a brilliant woman who has served the country well and would be an effective VP.

Of course I’m also an ABO and realize that whatever “we” think will have absolutely no impact on anything. It’s Romney’s call.

There are a great many FReepers that are working hard to ensure the election of hundreds of true conservatives down-ticket - to impede RINO attempts to be just like Dim-crats.

I don't think FReepers are working to insure an 0bama victory - they are working to bottle the fool up by taking Congress away from him. If, by some fluke, Romney is elected, he needs to be bottled up just as tightly as 0bama.

I see a lot of people on FR that would like to see the GOP refrain from destroying the party and the country. I have real problems with Romney but I’m supporting him and have sent money. I had to remember back when I was saying anybody but obama, we got the anybody. I don’t want to see them make it any worse, we have to beat obama. Many times in life we must perform unpleasant or odious task, some tasks are better attended to before they get worse, I will not vote 3 rd party and I will not NO VOTE, I will vote to beat obama. But we really could use some help from the Romney campaign.

Agreed. Not only with your comment about Bush redux, but the instant turn to nastyville the media will take in order to:
1.) Ridicule Romney for trying to buy minority and female votes and
2.) Rip Condi apart in every possible way for being a turncoat or Uncle Tom like they do to all black conservatives...

Also, she has made it clear that she served Bush upon request, but has no interest in competing for elective office.
