The Smartest Woman In America

Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, left, and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, center, greet each other after unveiling the new statue of late US President Ronald Reagan, during a centennial commemoration in Budapest, Hungary, Wednesday, June 29, 2011. The bronze statue honors Reagan at the Freedom Square in central Budapest to mark his efforts to free the people of Hungary from the yoke of communism.

On November 1, 2011 Norah O’Donnell, CBS Chief White House Correspondent, interviewed Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice asking her thoughts on becoming vice president.

During the interview Rice emphatically stated, “I love being a university professor.  I’m not interested in being vice president.  I’m a policy person not a politician.”

On Sunday, December 18, 2011, Joseph Curl offered his conjecture that Rice is reportedly getting “antsy” to get back into the political game.

Curl writes, “…her selection would be a giant chess move to counter the expected replacement of Vice President Joseph R. Biden with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Sure, the White House denies and denies, but that should really make any political watcher more suspicious. One White House insider even told me that the position swap was the only reason Mrs. Clinton joined the administration in the first place.”

“Clearly, the 2012 election is shaping up to be all about the U.S. economy. Everything Mr. Obama has tried has failed, so American voters are looking for someone who can actually fix the problems. But what the Republican presidential hopefuls lack is foreign policy experience.”

“Cue Miss Rice. With Vladimir Putin set to reascend to the Russian presidency, the Soviet scholar is perfectly suited for what’s coming next.”

“There are a few other women available as down-ticket choices: Rep. Michele Bachmann will certainly be considered, as will Nikki Haley, the South Carolina governor who last week endorsed Mitt Romney. But nearly no one on the Republican side—man or woman—can deliver what Miss Rice can. And while you haven’t yet heard her name when the political pundits tick off the top tier of vice-presidential players, you’re about to. Starting today.”

  1. Why is it we look to our VP candidates for any excitement on the Republican ticket? From your lips to God's ear, please! Anyone on the Republican ticket who chooses Condi has my vote, she is amazing.

  2. @Pat,

    I wish she'd make herself available as well, but based on her emphatic denial I'm not sure that this scenario will play out.

  3. Condi would be an asset to any Republican ticket.

  4. @Proof,

    I wholeheartedly agree, but as I wrote to Pat above, I don't think Condi can be persuaded to enter the political circus.

Please scribble on my walls otherwise how will I know what you think, but please don’t try spamming me or you’ll earn a quick trip to the spam filter where you will remain—cold, frightened and all alone.
