Condi Rice for Mitt’s veep? You mean THIS Condi Rice?

Condi Rice for vice president?

Personally, I think it’s a great idea, but only if Joe Biden decides that he doesn’t want a second term.

Yeah, that's the ticket.

Yeah, that's the ticket.

But wait … Drudge is reporting that she’s now a frontrunner for the Republican veep pick?

Hmmm. That would be interesting. She is obviously qualified for the position, and her selection would shake up the campaign in ways that no other potential candidate could match.

On the other hand:

She has described President Bush’s decision to withdraw from the Kyoto Treaty on climate change as a “self-inflicted wound,” and while she doesn’t support implementing Kyoto in its present form, she believes the United States must lead international action on that problem.

Rice has also discussed what she calls her “mildly pro-choice” views, defends Roe v. Wade and “can’t imagine why one would take these decisions out of the hands of the family.” She believes it “appropriate” to consider race in college admissions, says affirmative action is needed “if it does not lead to quotas” and acknowledges that she herself benefited from the program. As secretary of state, she appointed that department’s first chief diversity officer.

She supports civil unions for gay Americans and warns against mixing religion and politics, “because that is really when man is trying to use God for his own purposes.” She has also made clear her distaste for the Dick Cheney school of foreign policy, from which Romney has drawn most of his foreign policy advisers. In fact, she publicly defended Obama against charges by Cheney that he has weakened the country, nothing that “Nothing in this president’s methods suggests this president is other than a defender of America’s interests.”

Rice is on the record as recognizing that both tax increases and spending cuts will be needed to balance the budget, with an emphasis on spending cuts. However, she opposes spending cuts on foreign aid, which Romney has proposed, and backs “strong investment in renewable energy like wind and solar” to begin to wean the country off oil.

She believes most illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay in this country, advocating “comprehensive immigration reform”. The United States, she said in 2008, “is going to have to have enlightened immigration policies if we’re going to stay this strong, competitive, open magnet for the best and brightest from around the world that we’ve been.”

And on Israel, the conservative Jewish Telegraphic Agency warns that ‘overall she’s a big advocate of a two-state solution who is closer to the Obama team on this issue than she is to where the GOP candidates and GOP base have been during this campaign season.”

Now, if the modern Republican Party is nonetheless willing to have a candidate with such beliefs on its national ticket — and if it’s willing to “let Condi be Condi,” rather than force her to do a full Romney and recant these and other positions — then I think that her nomination would be great for both the party and the nation.

Somehow, I’m a little doubtful that’s going to happen.

I think they are using the Palin Ploy again, but this time with more thought (but not enough) than with Ste, Sarah of the Tundra. As Jay points out, her views seem a little too moderate and reasoned…certainly not what the GOP wants….and her choice would call to mind her association with President Bush. With Mitt’s reaction to the Cheney fund raiser, I don’t think he wants that onus…jus’ supposin’…

In the slight chance the Romney wins, we will have two pro choice Republicans in the WH.

We would have Romney who changed his stance to appease the social conservatives (but everyone knows what he is) and Condi.

But don’t bet on it. Romney isn’t stupid and is looking for no inter Party controversy on abortion leading up to the election.

Headline (CNN …… Repeat CNN !!! ): ” Why is 1999 so important in 2012?”

“To be clear, all four of the sources voiced professional loyalty and personal respect for Romney. And all four have a vested interest in defending the work of Bain. But they were consistent in describing Romney’s departure as abrupt and in saying they could not recall him around the office in the months that followed.

Two highly reputable arbiters of political debate — The Washington Post’s fact-checking arm and FactCheck.org — also on Thursday stood by their earlier findings that Romney stepped away from any active role at Bain when he accepted the Olympics post. And Fortune reported that it obtained private Bain documents that support the Romney account.

But the Obama campaign and its liberal allies continue to hang their claim on the SEC filings.”

Just my two cents for what it’s worth, and I’m no GOP and won’t vote for that party no matter what, but I think a lot of those “pooh-poohing” are being a bit too naive. Nobody would have thought that the moderate Mormon stood the chance of a prayer in hell either, yet here we have the most radical right of the party doing the whoopdedoo dance.

Whether or not the liberal and left want to admit it, the GOP has already begun to signal a move back toward the center for the election and for the future of the party. Even they know that what worked in the 1980s and the first decades of the 2000s is no longer viable.

Ms Rice makes perfectly good sense as the choice and, truth be told, an awful lot of right and moderate non aligned centrists would be drawn toward Romney on that.

And let’s face it, she’d mop the floor with Biden in a VP debate.

Personally, I hope he does choose her, not for me, but for my country. It’s a step back from the brink, and that’s what we need more than anything else right now–left and right.

Steve @ 12:14. You are right. This country isn’t ready for a gay woman to be VP. Heck, this country isn’t ready for any gay person either male or female to be a leading political leader. This country is still too divided on this issue. And Condi is way to liberal as others have pointed out. Seems like no matter how educated or experienced a person is…. being liberal and gay in this country is a death knell…..

Thulsa:

1) In all seriousness, Romney should release ALL financial records. If someone wants to be President that’s part of the deal ……………. ALL RECORDS (financial, medical, educational, etc.)

2) I could care less about Obama’s grades …………. but I would like to know what he wrote in any papers and I sure want to know how his education was paid for ………. and if it was accomplished by student loans how is he listed on those applications.

Mittens is gonna get hung by those tax returns. If there was nothing to hide, they would be public, like every other candidate for the last 40 years. He must think getting his butt kicked daily is better than the alternative of exposure.

Sorry, wing-nuts. See ya in 2016 against Hillary.

“Voting for a candidate based on race is quite different for voting for someone based on their perceived policy stands.

Maybe that escaped you.”

Common Joe ………… you’re better than that. The reporting on that subject is all over the place.

Now, if the modern Republican Party is nonetheless willing to have a candidate with such beliefs on its national ticket — and if it’s willing to “let Condi be Condi,” rather than force her to do a full Romney and recant these and other positions

So what you would have is one part of the ticket contradicting the other. I dont see that happening.
She would have to twist herself into a pretzel, just like Mitt.
This story was put out just to get the heat off of the SEC filings and when Romney actually left Bain.

T. Cat — “You know what would be fun is a fight at the repub convention between Ron Paul and Mittens. I mean a rolling around on the floor fight much like the two dads at the Little League game.”

Take all the leaders from around the world
Put them together in a great big ring
Tell everybody it’s the Greatest Show on Earth
Then make them fight like hell to see who’s King
