Rice pursuing the VP spot...

Dan Senor: Condoleezza Rice Is Pursuing the VP Spot

April 06, 2008 11:48 AM

ABCNews’ Mary Bruce Reports: Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is actively courting the vice presidential nomination, Republican strategist Dan Senor said.

“Condi Rice has been actively, actually in recent weeks, campaigning for this,” Senor said this morning on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”

According to Senor, Rice has been cozying up to the Republican elite.

“There's this ritual in Washington: The Americans for Tax Reform, which is headed by Grover Norquist, he holds a weekly meeting of conservative leaders -- about 100, 150 people, sort of inside, chattering, class types,” Senor said. “They all typically get briefings from political conservative leaders. Ten days ago, they had an interesting visit -- Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice -- the first time a secretary of state has visited the Wednesday meeting.”

Senor explained that Rice’s history in public office would make her a prime candidate, especially in light of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain’s emphasis on experience throughout his campaign.

“What the McCain campaign has to consider is whether or not they want to pick a total outsider, a fresh face, someone a lot younger than him, a governor who people aren't that familiar with," Senor said. "The challenge they're realizing is that they'll have to have to spend 30 to 45 days, which they won't have at that point, educating the American public about who this person is.

“The other category is someone who people instantly say, the second they see that announcement, 'I get it, that person could be president tomorrow,'" Senor added. "Condi Rice is an option.”

Dear God, please, please, please...

Please make it so that the McCain campaign is about the incompetence of the Bush administration.

I can't see how McCain is stupid enough to pick a Bush-era anchor who contributes nothing to the campaign that he needs (aside from an unnecessary racial/gender balance).

If he wants to do this, the Dems should help make it happen, but the GOP should keep him from committing political suicide.

It just shows how oblivious the woman really is. I know the type: brainiac when it comes to book knowledge, but without a lick of street sense.

The downside, though, is that the Democrats are spineless. They probably wouldn't attack like they should if McCain were to bring Condi on the ticket.

Rice is a horrible choice. McCain should go with the babeticious governor from Alaska.

Oh yeah, also want to add that if McCain doesn't pick Rice then he is a racist.

For as silly as she made herself look at the 9/11 hearings, I think she's made it through the Bush administration relatively unscathed. I don't know if it would be a good choice, but I don't think it would be suicide, either.

Also, if we're going to look at this cynically (which we are), you gotta think that the GOP finds the prospect of balancing the minority issue appealing.

There are MUCH better ways to do that.

Colin Powell (not going to happen, but best choice)
Michael Steele
JC Watts
Alan Keyes

I think Alan Keyes is to preachy, JC Watts has some advantages, of course Colin POwell would make a top notch running mate, not really familiar with Steele.
