Quit Asking for Rice

I think Condoleezza Rice is great. I liked her when she was on the National Security Council; I was thrilled to meet her when she was Provost at Stanford; I thought it was great when she was elevated to Secretary of State.

But she's not going to run for President in 2008, and she's not going to be elected.

AP articles about 'Condistas,' and websites dedicated to drafting her are fine, but she has never run for elective office. She has rejected entreaties to seek office. And when was the last time America elected a candidate who had never sought office before? This is one of those cases where Dick Morris is spectacularly wrong.

She's not going to run. Why not focus on candidates who have a chance?

Back to the top.

The morning of the London subway bombings one of the major cable news outlets cut away from Bloomberg's press conference to interview Rudy, who just happened to be in London at the time. That's all you need to know about Bloomberg.
