There has been much speculation on Mitt Romney’s short list for vice-president. On July 12th, Jedd Rosche, in announced in the Politico website that “a surprise name is now near the top of the list: Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice!.” That Drudge report, set up a variety of reaction from the blogs and newsgroups.
“Drudge: Condi Rice near the top of Romney’s VP shortlist? Update: ‘No Condi'”, said Allahpundit on HotAir. Reasons he gives: (1) Problem one: Bush, Bush, Bush, (2) Problem two: Last I checked, Condi’s pro-choice and (3) The left will attack any woman and/or minority VP choice viciously as “inauthentic”. Laura Bassett reported in the Huffington Post that Condoleezza Rice VP Possibility Denounced By Anti-Abortion Group. Wendyzachary in AllVoices reported that Condoleezza Rice neither interested in nor suitable for GOP’s VP slot.
Interestingly, there were some strong support for Condi. The blog at Constitution Daily, indicated that Fox poll show Condoleezza Rice as top vice presidential pick. According to CP Politics Sarah Palin, Paul Ryan Say Condi Rice Would Make a Good VP Despite Her Pro-Choice Views.
Could all this activity regarding Condi Rice be causing Mitt Romney second thoughts on the announcement regarding his VP selection being announced “soon”?
