Condi Courting VP Spot

By  | 

Looks like my April Fools joke may not be a joke after all.

From ABC News:

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is actively courting the Vice Presidential nomination, according to Republican Strategist Dan Senor. “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 explained. “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.”

Question: does anybody think she’s ready to lead the free world? Anybody think she has displayed the type of judgment need to be the POTUS? Anybody think she’d be in her current position if she didn’t simply fall lockstep in line with everything Bush wants?

No, neither do I.
