    I think she is possibly/probably the smartest person in the Bush administration and possibly in federal government.
    I believe she has a logical and realistic view of the world.

    I think I'd roll on the flood laughing if she ran against Queen Hillary, because Conde would mop the floor...and Hillary wouldn't be able to retort that the country was just still so sexist...oh poor me...after she got her clock cleaned. My how the republicans electing the first woman, and the first black to the Presidency would change the landscape. Ann Coulter would make a good running mate for her too, by the way.
