“Rice is already fourth in line for the Presidency…”


Well, Look what Drudge dredged up: An article by Hendrik Hertzberg suggesting McCain pick Condoleezza Rice as his running mate. Since my first pick, the Governor of Alaska, is now pregnant, I guess this might do, and not just because she’s a black woman – a two-fer – but because as a black woman she could eviscerate Hillary, or Obama… or both. Have to admit, I hadn’t thought of this.

I know what a lot of you are thinking: Condi makes nice with bad guys. Well, she’s the Secretary of State, and that’s part of her job; to be a foil for the president. It doesn’t mean she wants to rub shoulders with baddies, or that she likes them.

I’ll have to ponder this, but I have to admit it’s an interesting possibility. I sure as hell hope he doesn’t pick some cookie-cutter conservative white guy.

    That’s an interesting idea. I’m not sure I trust her anymore, but then I really don’t trust any of them, so what could it hurt? You’re right, adding her to the ticket could sink all that holier-than-thou rhetoric spewing out of the Democrats.

    In case anyone misunderstands (sad commentary that I even have to clarify this), by not trusting “any of them”, I mean the pols running for president.

    Because second in line to the free world should know how to throw a post pattern and a deep out.

    Over at OLD FORD ROAD I’ve been advocating for a VP pick that will steal some of the Dem’s “CHANGE” thunder. I think Condi could do it.

    Not a bad idea, Angus. Nice point re negating the Obama/Hillary lure.

    And, let’s not forget, Condi is “black enough.” LOL!

Well, SAY something...
