President Condoleezza Rice?

Jerry Stratton, November 17, 2004

Just a quick note about a well-written piece discussing whether Condoleezza Rice would make a good president. I agree with Swann, I'd like to see her in the contest, and I think I'd like to see her win. (Well, I’d like to see her come in second to a Libertarian candidate.)

February 9, 2005: More Rice for President

Now Dick Morris is joining the call to convince Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to run for President.

The title of his editorial, “To stop Hillary, draft Condi”, is annoying; Rice should be drafted because she is qualified, not to stop someone else. Running a campaign against another opponent is part of why Kerry lost, in my opinion. But Morris has it on the head right here:

A real presidential draft movement hasn’t happened since 1952, when Republicans urged Eisenhower to get into the race. A draft-Condi movement seems almost antiquated in this era of ambitious and self-promoting candidates, but it may well fill a deep need in the electorate to vote for someone who is running in response to a genuine call of the people.
