Informed Speculation (But Speculation Nonetheless): Condi Rice Flirts With Veepslot Possibility

1) Does McCain even actually need this additional advantage anymore?

2) Will Condi actually provide any advantage? She's a) not really very conservative, b) not really a politician and not exactly charismatic in a politican's way, and c) entirely untested in this field, and d) unlikely to actually induce any women to vote R if Hillary is the nominee or blacks to vote R if Obama is the nominee. How many votes does she actually deliver?

3) Can we really afford another liberalish moderate on the ticket?

4) Is she really all that? She's not exactly John Bolton even in her sphere of expertise. I think the idea of Condi > Condi.

5) Is this really who we want for our presumptive nominee in 2016 or even 2012?

But the door is apparently open, and one would have to be a fool not to push it open a bit more and check things out.

As one major Republican operative told me yesterday:

Someone like Condi Rice doesn't go to Grover Norquist's den to talk about the Annapolis Middle East peace process. She's going to secure her future in Republican politics and to position herself as a 'potential' VP candidate on the McCain ticket.

Thanks to Liberrrocky.

Frum: isn't thrilled with Condi.

Thanks to TheGuvnah.
