Will Condoleeza Be a Pleeza?

I don't have much of an opinion, except that I'm marginally inclined against her, so I'll just link some blathering about it.

By the way, I think this is manufactured news -- when there's no news, you make some up. But whatevs.

Ramesh Ponuru calls the hypothetical choice "nuts." The balls on that guy.

Peggy Noonan is a big fan, if you care.

You know what's shocking? Noonan says Rice is 57 years old. Fifty seven? She looks 40.

No link for Politico, but Sarah Palin says Rice would be a "wonderful" Vice President and notes Rice has far more experience than the current President. She gives Rice a qualified pass on her "mild" support of abortion, stating that Rice wouldn't have responsibility over that issue anyway. (Unless, of course, she became President, which is something to consider.)

Bill Kristol is ambivalent, but digs her high 66-24 favorable ratings.

Rice wowed the crowd—and seemed to impress Mitt Romney, who was standing beside her—when she spoke in a featured role at a Romney campaign event two weeks ago in Park City, Utah. Rice is qualified, would be a poised (if novice) candidate, and would complement Romney in terms of area of expertise, gender (obviously!), and life experience. Rice offers an unusual combination of being at once a reassuring pick (she served at the highest levels of the federal government for eight years) and an exciting one.

I'd really like to hear this speech where she supposedly "wowed" the crowd. Buzzfeed has a very poor audio copy, which I can't listen to because it's so bad. (Surreptitious recording, I imagine.) I kind of like Rice, but while her bio is kind of wow-worthy, she's never wowed me with a statement or speech.

I think that's why I'm against her. While she seemed like a rock star, and I rooted for her like she was a rock star, and even sometimes dresses like a rock star, she actually never had a hit album, and ten years later we'll all still sort of waiting for her to demonstrate her rock star status.
