Sgt Otter: bdub77: She's a good pick - a smart, black woman with foreign policy experience. Doesn't really change my vote though, a Romney presidency would be a disaster.

Her foreign policy experience isn't the kind that would appeal to moderates, swing voters, and disillusioned Democrats.


Yeah, if you're going to try to court people angry at the President, bringing people up who were responsible for the worst abuses of one of the most disliked Presidents in US history is not the right way to do it.

If this was true, which I severely doubt, there is no way it won't be seen as "Hey, you got a Negro? So do I! And this one has tits! Awesome! Vote Romney."

"I'm saying there is no way I will do this, because it's really not me, I know my strengths. Gov. Romney needs to find someone who wants to run with him," Rice said. "There are many people who will do it very, very well, and I'll support the ticket."

She's said no, people. This was on Tuesday.

So if she says yes she's a perfect Romney running mate.

Ya know, if I were Condi this would be alot of fun.

You know there's no chance in hell of winning, but you get the VIP treatment again for awhile, sell some more books, get to ramp-up the speaking engagements with a few more zeroes at the end of the fee when it's over and done with and you spar with someone that's decent like Biden on national TV.

I would say the worst part of it is that Sarah Palin would come knocking at your door after it was all over saying how you two have so much in common.

tenpoundsofcheese: InmanRoshi: This About That: Rice is one of the smartest people and maybe one of the best cabinet level officials in recent memory

It's quite astounding to me what people actually base this common opinion on other than Cult of Personality. Her tenure at Secretary of the State was an mitigated disaster in every sense. An unmitigated disaster people have no problem pegging to Rumsfeld, or Bush, or Cheney ... but for some reason they let Rice, who was right in the middle of it all, completely skate. It's hard to think of a US diplomatic relationship, other than Israel, that wasn't worse off when she left it.

more hatred of woman on display.
"completely skate"? racist comments too.

First off, this reminds me of the West Wing episode where Toby Ziegler just randomly announces a senator has agreed to join some committee without actually asking him--mainly because he knows that if he does ask, that senator will refuse.

Second, let me get this straight. Two days after Romney is loudly and unequivocally booed by the largest politically-organized group of African-Americans, he's going to choose a black female as his running mate. If this is true, this is pandering of the worst kind, akin to picking Sarah Palin because she's a woman (who happened to be attractive with large breasts--forbid they pick someone like Collins or Snowe). "Look how progressive I am! I picked one of you people!"

Third, she's on record as stating no interest in the vice-presidency, which is nothing new. That being said, she gave a speech on immigration reform and the wealth gap at the end of June, so it's possible.

Still, I have to maintain some disbelief. Surely she has to understand that Romney is not the second coming of Reagan and that he lacks the populist appeal of Bush the Lesser. She's not a farking idiot (though I debate that with myself). Plus, her own image within the GOP is as a tough politico. So why not run in 2016? Or make a farkton of cash at Stanford? Or elsewhere?

I think there's a bigger problem here. I seem to remember that there was always name dropping of definite possibilities for VP in previous elections, and most everyone mentioned wouldn't openly say "Oh hell no, I'd rather have herpes." For Romney, in July, a month before the convention, there is not a single person who's been name dropped who has said something equivocal. It's always, "No. No no. No no no, no no no no no no no no no."

So I go back to Toby Ziegler. What if Romney just announces that she's the VP candidate without actually asking her? That would paint her into a corner, forced to either play the good soldier or say, "Are you kidding? I'd sooner inject black tar heroin into my eyeballs before I'd join the ticket with that career-killer."

If that is the case, and that no one actually wants to be Romney's running mate, then the GOP doesn't just have a problem with this election, but a generational problem that threatens party survival.

TL;DR. Romney is herpes.
