Drudge reports that Congo-Lizzie is at or near the top of Romney's short list for the second spot on his ticket. I have been saying all along that it would be either Bobby Jindal or Marco Rubio, simply because I don't think either major party will ever again run a ticket of two White males. http://www.drudgereport.com/flashcm.htm
Jindal has one powerful advantage in that he is even blacker than Obama, but Rubio has been my favorite to get the nod because in addition to being a minority, he is also, like Obama, constitutionally ineligible to serve, since he was born to parents who were not citizens of the United Sates.
But I could be wrong. Condi, who brings a combination of powerful factors to the table, being a negro and a female could very well spring the upset. The fact that she is nearing 60 without ever being married only adds to her luster in post-American Amerika. The reports that she actually dated a male back in the 1970's detracts somewhat, but is not really crippling.
All things considered, since the GOP truly is "The Stupid Party,"and since Condi flatly refused to divulge whom she was voting for in 2008, she just might get the nod. I was especially impressed by the joyous tears she shed on election night in 2008, as she celebrated Obama's victory. Huff Post says:Ain't it funny how Race trumps everything for the dark races, but WE are the ones called "Racist?"Rice called the Democratic president-elect "inspirational" and said his victory was proof of America's promise. "This was an exercise in American democracy of which Americans across the political spectrum are justifiably proud," she said.
"As an African-American, I'm especially proud," said Rice, her eyes glistening with emotion, "because this is a country that's been through a long journey, in terms of overcoming wounds and making race" less of a factor in life. "That work is not done, but yesterday was obviously an extraordinary step forward."
