“Dr. Rice has repeatedly said in past cycles as well as this one, she’s not interested in being vice president,” Georgia Godfrey told Yahoo News in a statement. “She’s happy at Stanford and plans to stay.”

Rice will also stay away from Cleveland, where Republicans are expected to anoint the volatile entrepreneur as their candidate. “She does not plan to go to the convention,” Godfrey said.

Since President Bush left office in January 2009, “Draft Condi for (TBD elected office)” speculation has never fully gone away. She’s the highest-profile African-American woman in the party and a former secretary of state who consistently rates well with voters. Various news outlets have recently fed that fire. In the past week, right-leaning Newsmax and Breitbart News each ran a story touting the possibility that Rice, now a professor of political science at Stanford University and fellow at its Hoover Institution, might run with Trump....

Before too many FReepers get all weepy about Condi and how “classy” she is, etc.:

She’s pro-abortion.

I suspect she has some personal stories in her background that she doesn’t want people to know. As long as she held appointed offices no one DUG into her private life. That would not be the case if she actually ran for office

Yahoo can't avoid pushing the spin. He will not be anointed. He was ELECTED by the PEOPLE to become their nominee. The left is so upset they can't see straight.

Ms. Rice is a smart, tough woman. She won’t be Trump’s VP because she disagrees with his anti-establishment campaign. She probably should have ran for president in 2008.

How is this news? Did Trump ask her to be his VP? I didn’t think so. More MSM gutter trash.

Good.

Condi Rice opposed Tea Party Tim Donnelly in the CA Gov Primary.

She joined Mitt Romney, Hugh Hewitt, Michael Medved as an open supporter of Neel Kashkari, the self admitted Obama voter, supporter of amnesty, gay marriage, and abortion.

That’s your “conservative” Condi Rice.
