Condi for VEEP?

Speaking of Black women in popular culture, in what will be an endless summer of speculation about who John McCain will select for his Vice Presidential running mate, over the weekend Dan Senor said that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. That has about a snow ball's chance in Honolulu of happening, but it was nice to imagine the possibility for a moment of a Hillary vs. Condi Vice Presidential debate. I just can't see Condoleezza kissing babies, shaking hands, ad answering questions in townhall meetings and everything she has ever said indicates that she finds the thought of campaigning unappealing. I think John McCain kind of nipped this one in the bud.

Sen. John McCain said Sunday he hasn't seen signals Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is interested in running as vice president.

"I missed those signals," McCain told reporters on his campaign plane. "I think she's a great American. I think there's very little that I can say that isn't anything but the utmost praise for a great American citizen, who served as a role model to so many millions of people in this country and around the world."

State Department spokesman Sean McCormack also denied Monday Rice was interested in the job.

"If she is actively seeking the vice presidency then she is the last one to know about it," he said. "She plans on going back West of the Mississippi to Stanford when she's completed her work as Secretary of State." CNN.com
Not to mention the fact that she isn't a social conservative. This is just a preemptive strike to say she was "considered" Clinton did the same thing with Barbara Jordan and the Attorney General position I want to say it was in 92.

There is an entire blog ( an unflattering one)dedicated to covering Secretary Rice 24/7 ( Not Safe For Work). Princess Sparkle Pony, America's Favorite Princess Diplomat. If you look at the comments section, I am pretty sure most of their readers are not Black women or women for that matter. I am convinced they will do the same thing to Michelle Obama, only worse. prepare yourselves.

You say what?
