I like her. Not as president, because I honestly think she would hate the job - she's a very private person. Grab pictures from before and after she took on StateSec and you can see that it took a lot out of her.

I want to hear more from her though. Talented, experienced, highly intelligent - of course that will all be ignored by the media since she is black and female.  :shrug:

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

I'd like to hear more from her too; but on international/defense issues only.  That's her strength.  And we need her voice on these issues  now more than ever.

You gave me a sudden, nasty thought.

She is not just strong on those issues, she's damned smart, knows both the briefing material and the stuff she's picked up by actually paying attention forwards, backwards and sideways. She knows, bone deep, that foreign policy is the art of the knife, not the club. Not over praising her, most folk to the right get that.

Then you see the Worm. Speaks loudly and carries a toothpick, as far as other countries go. That has GOT to be deliberate. Nice thought before bed time - thanks!  :whistle:

Condi is smart and tough as nails. She has never held elective office and the presidency is not the place to start but we need people like her at high level appointments and office.

Smart - agreed. Tough? Not so sure - not judging her words or her courage, but she likes her privacy and has made that very clear. She would hate the goldfish bowl of being president.

Me - I'd put her as head of either the NSA or DoD. Works to her strengths.

She would make someone an amazing Veep, in the tradition of Dick Cheney...

I think she is very qualified to be President. She would be ran-off like Rudy was because of social issues. Another dark horse contender I wish would run is Jon Voight. People will say he needs political experience yet they despise the politics of Washington.

I agree with you but I doubt she would ever be interested. There is something about the political arena she doesn't care for. Probably too decent to get very involved with it. Cabinet position or some such spot is perfect for her. One of the more competent people in gov't in a long while regardless of what one thinks of her positions

Really?
What elected office has she yet won?

Is this the same gal who was, not long ago, fawning over the guy who's president?
Who may have even voted for him?

She's Colin Powell in a skirt.

I'm gonna get razzed for this, but I'm simply not interested in voting for a black for the presidency. I don't see how even a conservative black could represent the majority of Americans. Call me a racist if you wish, with me, it's like water off a duck's back.

BTW, after you've said that, you might be interested to know that I happily voted for Gary Franks to be my congressman. Can't recall if it was twice or three times. He was the Republican candidate here. He was also a black guy.

I think calling her Powell in a skirt is going a bit too far. I happen to think a conservative black could represent Americans. I think Allen West would be ideal.  I also think a conservative woman would as well. I would not assume if I were you, that Ms. Rice is an Obama supporter. Stick with who's turn it is next and make sure it is a white guy. I happen to think that politically, this attitude will have us all hearing Madame President Clinton.

I think it is high time we had a woman President but I will walk through glass to ensure it is not Hillary. Baby steps is all we have. No perfect candidate is going to clean up DC and dismantle the alphabet big gov agencies AND become President anytime soon. It is vital that the democrats do not win and continue full marxist communism in America. A woman, black conservative, or strong military leader will be the only way we win, like it or not. Even if one of the candidates currently running, does superb in the debates the media will take them down and Hillary will use Obama's get out the vote cheat machine. Non political junkies don't know what we know about Hillary. We need to fight fire with fire this time or we need God and a miracle. That is how I feel, so flame away. It is what it is.
