More Chatter About Condi for VP

Election '08

On ABC's This Week, the idea that Condoleeza Rice is actively pursuing the VP slot continues. GOP strategist Dan Senor floated it again.

Speaking of possible Vice President options for McCain, Senor said, "Condi Rice is an option. Tom Ridge is an option. Although, I think he'd have problems at the convention. Mitt Romney is an option. Condoleeza Rice has been actively campaigning for this. There's this ritual in Washington, The Americans for Tax Reform which is headed by Grover Norquist, holds a weekly meeting of conservative leaders, about 100 or 150 people. Sort of inside chattering class types and they all typically get briefings from political conservative leaders. Ten days ago, they had an interesting visit from Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice."
Senor, whose most notable experience was as spokesman for the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq, later added, it was "the first time a Secretary of State has visited the Wednesday meeting. and she wasn't there to talk about the NATO meeting in Bucharest."
Raw Story has the video.

Speaking of Rice, it looks like Oliver Stone, in his quest to cast his film about Dear Leader, has picked his Condi.
