Condi Actively Campaigning For VP Spot?

Posted by avideditor on April 6, 2008

NOOOOO!  I really hope McCain uses his brains and rejects her campaign to be VP. She would the worst VP for Israel. She totally buys into the Paliwood lies and mistakenly compares there problems with the 60’s civil writes movement. Anyone active in the McCain campaign please pass on the message that McCain will lose major support if he has her a running mate. I will never cast a vote with her on the ticket.

Condi Actively Campaigning For VP Spot?: ”


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.’
