Skip to comments.Palin says Rice's view on abortion shouldn't disqualify her as VP

I think that Condoleezza Rice would be a wonderful vice president, Palin told Fox News on Thursday night. She compared Rice's past experience favorably to that of Obama.
But Palin dismissed concerns over Rice's stance on the subject.
I would certainly prefer a presidential and vice presidential candidate who had that respect for all innocent precious purposeful human life, Palin said. We need to remember, though, that its not the vice president that would legislate abortion and that would be Congresss role, and well keep that in mind.

Well, Palin just went down a notch in my book. The VP should directly reflect the thoughts and policy of the president as far as I’m concerned.
I don’t often disagree with anything Palin says, but on this one I must. To think that killing babies is OK, cannot be forgiven.
I agree with SP. It is *other* things that IMO “disqualify” Condi. And I wouldn’t use the word “disqualify”, because in the 0bama/Maxine Waters/Joe Biden era of political buffoonery, the very concept of “qualifications” really does not exist.
I’ve lost even my write-in candidate now.
Of course not because it has nothing to do with being 'conservative'. She is African American and by God that is what the GOP needs. To 'reach out'.
I don’t think she wants to run BUT... what if she was the vp and in 8 years she was running for prez. What would Sarah say then? I don’t think i could vote in the election if she were the vp pick. except for the congress.
In my opinion the dems are wicked but the reps are stupid.
I disagree. Also if Rice voted for Obama, why would anyone want her as a candidate?
Sorry. I refuse to even vote for a local school board candidate who isn’t pro-life. A person’s fundamental valuing of life permeates all other attitudes and decisions.
I’m like that, too. They think we’re mental cases but so be it.
I want my donation back.
That is correct. To me...the person who thinks abortion is "OK" or a woman's choice has a mental defect. I cannot understand that mindset...and if they are that corrupted in their thinking...then they are likely corrupted about other things.
Another one bites the dust. I think Rush said something equally idiotic today.
Sarah is correct. While I disagree on the subject, I do not vote based on a single issue.
You are putting the OOOM PHASIS on the wrong SYL ABLE
What you have here is Palin simply not taking the bait to trash a former Secretary of State ~ for no good reason.
This was not, as those who know more about it have said, a Republican rumor ~ it was a Democrat rumor.
IN that light Palin's comment was pretty noncommital.
At the same time all that Romney has at stake if he picks an abortion rights supporter is the loss of the entire RTL community when it comes to campaigning on the ground, and most likely voting for the top of the ticket.
Remember, some Republicans have conspired together to make sure they are always known as 'the stupid party' and Mitt's dad was a charter member of that club ~ so there's no guessing just how stupid he can be.
I"m convinced he's a loser.
