Drudge Report Says Condoleezza Rice Frontrunner as Mitt Romney’s Running Mate

The Drudge Report is saying Condoleezza Rice has emerged as the front runner for Mitt Romney’s running mate. Matt Drudge has been wrong before, so let’s see how this plays out. Um, this is called changing the news coverage about Mitt Romney. This leak was meant to take the heat off Romney over his Bain departure date and his catastrophic speech at the NAACP convention.

It was Condi who received two standing ovations at Romney’s Utah retreat a few weeks ago, and everyone left with her name on their lips.

Rice made an extended argument for American leadership in the world.

In recent days, she emailed supporters:

“2012 is perhaps a turning point for the United States.”

“The upcoming elections loom as one of the most important in my lifetime,” she warned. “I’m very often asked to speak about our current foreign policy and the challenges that lie before us. However, we, as a country, are not going to be able to address any of those international challenges unless we first get our domestic house in order.” Source: Drudge Report

If Mitt Romney picks Condoleezza Rice, she will be a far more credible vice presidential candidate than Sarah Palin. I personally like Condi Rice, but I wonder if she could live down the rehashing of the Iraqi war and her association with George W. Bush and Dick Cheney? Still, Condoleezza Rice has never run for public office, but she’s no political novice. She was one of the most powerful women in the world like her Democratic counterpart Hillary Clinton.

    That would be the wisest move on Mitt’s part. I agree with you that Hillary and Condi are the two most powerfull women in politics. The sad part is that the rest of the women in congress don’t follow their lead.

    • Pelmo — She may be a thousand times better than Sarah Palin, but they will bring up the Iraq war again. That won’t be good for the Republicans, since the war contributed to the economic nightmare. She may be smart and I like her a lot, but she may be a handicap for him.

  • In all seriousness, what has Hillary accomplished? I can’t see anything.

    I think Rice would be an excellent VP. We need the second-in-command of our Country to be someone more than a campaign bulldog, and source of gaffe humor. Rice could do that.

    • Ted — Hillary Clinton has accomplished nothing, that’s why her approval rating is even higher than Condi Rice’s when she served as Secretary of State. Hillary Clinton a gaffe machine? Really?
