Skip to comments.Condoleezza Rice Still Not Interested In VP Slot
Posted on 07/13/2012 8:33:53 PM PDT by forbushalltheway
Despite the Drudge Report's article Thursday night reporting that Condoleezza Rice is the new frontrunner to be Mitt Romney's running mate, a spokesperson for the former secretary of state tells ABC News she is still not interested in the job.
In an email the spokesperson said that Rice, who is on vacation, has no plans to comment specifically on the Drudge Report article, but that all of her previous statements denying interest in being Romney's vice presidential pick "still stand."
The Romney campaign has not commented on the report. Drudge has long appeared supportive of the Romney campaign and there are ties between the site's founder, Matt Drudge, and Romney staffers.
Rice, who was secretary of state under President George W. Bush, is now a professor at Stanford University. But there has been more and more buzz about this on the blogosphere and at some news outlets. The Washington Post published an op-ed last weekend about how some conservatives view Rice favorably because she's the "anti-Palin." Conservative commentator and editor of The Weekly Standard, Bill Kristol, continued to stoke the fire by predicting that Rice is a front-runner, due in large part to a CBS interview Ann Romney gave when she said the campaign is considering a woman running mate.
For her part Rice has repeatedly and consistently maintained that she not only doesn't want to be VP, she doesn't want to run for any elected office.

Palin or West....no other way Romney gets my vote.
What a coincidence. I’m still not interested in having her as my candidate.
Thanks forbushalltheway. John Bolton!
Ha! Beat me to it.
It’s Friday night. I’ll get drunk and slow my reflexes so you can have the edge on the next one.
Palin ??? You MUST be joking .
That's great because I'm not interested in her for the VP slot, or any other slot.
Don’t do it, Romney. It would be a bad, bad move.
Sorry for the run-on sentence.
Colon Powell in a skirt .
That makes two of us...
I have been trying to alert the media types on our side for years that this woman made a complete mess of the Israeli / Palestinian dustup. First she pushes Israel into giving Gaza to the PLO, then supports open elections... they elect Hamas, fractionalize the PLO, and rain rockets down on Israel every day.
What exactly was the 'hope' for her hair-brained policy? She has endangered Israel five times over by her silly notions and been responsible for the deaths of untold Israelis.
If one more person tries to tell me she is brilliant, I am going to try to establish an Hamas base next to their house and see how brilliant they think that is.
Oh, she's brilliant all right, Bob. Just not very smart.
BTW, you can try to start a Hamas base next door. I need the practice, and they carry the same ammo as me ........................... Nyuck nyuck FRegards
