'Draft Condi'?

To Stop Hillary, Draft Condi
By Dick Morris

...The political fact is that a Rice candidacy would destroy the electoral chances of the Democratic Party by undermining its demographic base. John Kerry got 54 percent of his vote from three groups that, together, account for about a third of the American electorate: African-Americans, Hispanics and single white women. Rice would cut deeply into any Democrat’s margin among these three groups and would, most especially, deny Clinton the strong support she would otherwise receive from each of them.

Rice’s credentials for a candidacy are extensive and will grow throughout her tenure at the State Department. As former chancellor of Stanford University, she would have much in common with the pre-political careers of Woodrow Wilson and Dwight Eisenhower, presidents of Princeton and Columbia universities. Her service as national security adviser during a war and her current efforts as secretary of state demonstrate her ability to handle crises and to conduct herself with dignity and impact on the world stage.

As a social conservative and deeply religious person, she would face no bar in winning the votes of the Christian right, so crucial to winning the Republican nomination. Unlike former New York Mayor Rudy Guiliani (R) and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) — both of whom could probably win in November — she would be very attractive to the pro-life, anti-gun-control, anti-affirmative-action base of the GOP...
I really like this idea. I'll admit, at first, when I started hearing these "Condi in '08" people several months back, I wasn't really on the boat. But ya know, I would take her over Rudy or McCain anyday, and I wouldn't be surprised if more right wing/conservative Republicans don't start thinking the same way I am. She's such a brilliant woman and would help send a message to the country a poor black person CAN succeed in this great country of ours.

I was thinking in the back of my head as I was reading this - what are all the names liberals will call Condi if she becomes President if they can't call her a racist or a sexist? That takes away atleast 2/3 of the loony chants they love so dearly. When she's pro-life and anti-affirmative action, who are they to criticize? She's a black woman :]

This is the first time I heard she was socially conservative. Rudy and McCain are great guys, great for the party, but not only do I disagree with them on a lot of issues, so does the rest of the base. Rudy is for partial birth abortion. McCain... is well known to be Republican-lite. Just in the not so distant past he was criticizing the war, Bush's tax cuts "for the rich", Donald Rumsfeld, etc etc. Not to mention McCain has done little that I can think of as Senator besides Campaign Finance Reform (HA!) and that John Kerry Vietnam mediafest event (remember, they confirmed there were no more Vietnam MIAs or POWs with virtually no proof). If McCain or Rudy became President I think I would start to have a LOT of disagreements with them. Condi is perfect. She's fresh, intelligent, knowledgable, socially conservative, AND to top it off she'd help pound the idea out of liberal's heads that Republicans are sexist and racist.
