Will Mitt Romney Choose Condoleezza Rice As His VP Candidate?
Will Mitt have someone float the name and see the reaction?
Short List candidate #1....
If we can presume that Willard Mitt Romney will face Barack Hussein Obama in the presidential election of 2012, it is time to start speculating on who he will choose as his candidate for Vice President.
May I suggest that Condoleezza Rice is candidate #1 for that choice?
Her biographical sketch in real detail can be found at this link (below): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Condoleezza_Rice along with a fine photo of her as our 66th Secretary of State.
Romney is running on the basis that he is better qualified to get the American economy back on track while solving unemployment and directly dealing with the enormous national debt. He has those credentials in spades, as well as his governing experience as the governor of Massachusetts,
What he lacks, and it is a glaring lack for a man who can lead 21st Century America in the arena of world affairs, is experience with America's roles abroad. Secretary Rice has that experience he lacks.
Secretary Rice has a keen mind, experience in national security, knows foreign leaders, and has just participated in drafting a major report on what needs to be fixed in America's public education. She knows the operation of government from the White House on down, and that "the art of the possible" depends on cooperation with Congress in framing and reaching national goals.
With Secretary Rice on the Republican ticket, Romney can have increased voter appeal to minorities and to women voters. He gains the balance the ticket needs to counter any claims that he lacks the needed foreign policy experience, and "insider know how" to hit the ground running in the White House.
It is a long way still to November 6th's Election Day, but the marathon will soon become a sprint. I cannot imagine a stronger Republican ticket than Romney-Rice to lead America forward in 2013 and beyond. To make that ticket cohesive and as effective as possible, an early selection may be in the Republicans best interest as the sprint begins.
