    ROMNEY NARROWS VP CHOICES; CONDI EMERGES AS FRONTRUNNER
    Thu Jul 12 2012 19:30:01 ET

    **Exclusive**

    Late Thursday evening, Mitt Romney's presidential campaign launched a new fundraising drive, 'Meet The VP' -- just as Romney himself has narrowed the field of candidates to a handful, sources reveal.

    And a surprise name is now near the top of the list: Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice!

    The timing of the announcement is now set for 'coming weeks'.

    It was Condi who received two standing ovations at Romney's Utah retreat a few weeks ago, and everyone left with her name on their lips.

    Rice made an extended argument for American leadership in the world.

    In recent days, she emailed supporters:

    "2012 is perhaps a turning point for the United States."

    "The upcoming elections loom as one of the most important in my lifetime," she warned. "I'm very often asked to speak about our current foreign policy and the challenges that lie before us. However, we, as a country, are not going to be able to address any of those international challenges unless we first get our domestic house in order."

    Oh HELL YES!!!!
    Condi should be the Pres candidate, not him. She's a great choice to run the country, and one of the great reasons - she doesn't want to! Very intelligent, hihgly educated, very conservative, yes, go, Condi, go!

    I agree. I would support her for president in a heartbeat.

    She will not agree to it, IMO.

    I heard her on the radio the other day and she said most emphatically: NO WAY!

    No harm intended. :)

    I can't remember the last time I listened to a radio. When I get in the car, it's CD's. Moody Blues..Pink Floyd..Jimmy Hendrix..Simon and Garfunkel.. :D

    Back on subject
    Yeah, but they all say that. I don't think the Republicans would like it either. She publicly went totally negative about her job ( working with Cheney ). Believe it or not, a lot of repubs don't believe she's a true conservative.

    I liked her a lot, but what do I know.

    She is one of the most intelligent people in the United States. Why in the world would she want to take on a hassle like that? I realize power is what most elite people like, but to get involved in a screwed up mess like the Executive Branch boggles my mind.

    Count me in in the 'no way' camp. :rolleyes:

    Near as I can read, many are being vetted, and NONE have shown any interest.

    My opinion is, the sooner the better he makes a choice.

    Obie has AF1 to fly around the country, and Biden has AF2. Romney has himself. He needs another voice.

    I'm all for her but I don't think America is ready for a woman in that role.

    I think you are wrong, America is ready but the Democrats would try and destroy her.

    She'd be hard to hit with the usual attacks, racist, elitist, rich family, etc., they'd have to come up with something interesting.
    I think she'd do one hell of a job, and when it was over she'd go home with a sigh of relief.

    No problem, I drive all day and listen (too much) to talk radio. I usually just wind up angry and frustrated (damn right-wingers) so I have to tune it to FM to get my blood pressure back under control. I, personally think she would make an excellent VP! Maybe we'll get lucky and she will reconsider.
