We might as well bring this talk up to the top of the page from the comments section. Condi Rice a minority woman with a PHD, and experience as Secretary of State. She's pro gun, but mildly pro-abortion. I have always felt she's more physically attractive than Sarah Palin, and she certainly is a more media savvy and a more polished speaker.
But I personally think she's nothing more than a disinformation effort. She's something for the media chickens to cluck over and a wildcard in the deck for the Democrat strategists to wonder about. We'll get a full weekend of talking heads asking Democrat and Republican staffers if they think Condi would be a good choice or not, and that's it. I don't think she'll really be the choice.
Not that I'm an expert at all - those are just my instincts on the issue.
