Condi Rice likes Jeb Bush, Rubio in 2016

By Cameron Joseph

Condoleezza Rice says former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) woudl both be great presidential candidates.

"I think Jeb would be fantastic. I think there are several others who are considering it who would be fantastic," the former secretary of state tells OZY. "Jeb hasn't said whether he will run. He's a friend. I hope he does, frankly."

"Marco Rubio is also a fantastic young presence in our party, a great background, speaks volumes to the American Dream," Rice, a Republican who served in President George W. Bush's administration, added. "What I love about the way Marco Rubio talks about our country, or Jeb Bush for that matter, is that sense that 'we the people' is an inclusive concept."

Rice has been getting increasingly involved in internal GOP politics in the past few months. But she ruled out appearing on the Republican ticket in 2016.

She also wasn't that critical of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). Though she made it clear she and Cruz disagreed on plenty, including immigration reform, Rice pointed out that Ted's wife Heidi Cruz had worked under her in the National Security Administration and called them a "wonderful young couple."

If J Bush were to be the candidate I'd be completely diengaged from the campaign, the election and the political process..

Not me, Katz!

Oh...I'd hope my nose, but would happily cast a vote and work on my own sphere of influence.

I owe it to my children and grandchildren.

Even in here....some might say, Bush/Rubio is no different.

I would be there with you, DC, if I had a reason to believe it would make more than a dime's worth of difference!

Holding the nose and voting for the lesser of two evils is what got us where we are today.

DITTO.

That kind of thinking is supposedly what got us 4 more years of Obama.

I won't be a part of that kind of dereliction.

and, it's for the children :)
