Condoleezza Rice, who served George W. Bush as national security adviser and then secretary of state, has zero interest in being Donald Trumps running mate, her chief of staff said Friday.
Dr. Rice has repeatedly said in past cycles as well as this one, shes not interested in being vice president, Georgia Godfrey told Yahoo News in a statement. Shes 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. Shes 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....

Stay out da Bushes!
“...consistently rates well with voters...”
Nobody ever voted for her. .
She’ll support Hillary like all the other good little Bushies.
Don’t want her to be.
She would ba a good pick for Hilary ebony and ivory
Before too many FReepers get all weepy about Condi and how “classy” she is, etc.:
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.
So did I. Big deal.
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.
That’s really bad news.
Oh Damn! /sarc
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.
Good, don’t need the Bush team at all.
Open borders and endless wars bled us dry.
Where did I call her a conservative?
She wasn’t asked and never would have been.
Oh nooooo. You mean we don’t get a neocon Bushie?
It was a tsunami of a movement....how could she refuse?
