Condi is NOT Running With McCain. Period.

There’s been lot’s of talk coming out of the press about the Republican “Dream Ticket” which would be Senator John McCain and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. There was even a recent poll in New York State that showed with Rice on the ticket, McCain could beat Obama and/or Clinton in a general election. But the truth is, Condoleezza Rice is not running with no John McCain. Period.

Why is the media letting some DC spin doctors spread this drama? According to the Washington Post, the story made its way to the press because “Dan Senor, a GOP political operative, claimed on ABC’s “This Week” that Rice was “actively, actually in recent weeks, campaigning” for the job.”

Bullshit. They are just so desperate to get a Black woman on the ticket to try to combat the momentum Obama has, or to give Black folks a reason to go “Red” if Clinton is the highly unlikely nominee.

Yesterday, Democratic strategist Donna Brazille was on NPR’s News and Notes, and flat out denied that such a thing was possible. And if there’s a Black woman inside Washington who’d know other than Rice, it’s Brazille.

But even before that, Rice was reported by Reuters to have said in press conference in LATE FEBRUARY that “I have always said that the one thing that I have not seen myself doing is running for elected office,” Rice said at a news conference. “I didn’t even run for high school president. It’s sort of not in my genes.”

The media has the memory of a gold fish–and they’re just about as gullible.

  1. C’mon, Kenyon, I know you’re smarter than this. The Republican Machine, you know, the guys that came up with the “Call me…” ads against Harold Ford Jr., want this to happen. They’ve been begging Rice to do this ever since Rip van McCain went over the top in the delegate count.

  3. Comments are a really great way to extend blog entries into cogent conversations about the featured topic. It’s unfortunate that some people only see them as opportunities to contribute absolutely nothing but their rhetoric – no matter how unrelated that rhetoric may be to the topic.

    Now I believe that Condoleezza Rice is an intelligent Black woman who knows that the unforgettable image of her shopping at Ferragamo during the horror of Hurricane Katrina would be quite difficult (if not impossible) to spin into a viable vice-presidential candidacy. My guess is that she also realizes that she’s been an integral part of an ‘administration’ (using the term as loosely as humanly possible) that many people see as one of this country’s worst ever – and want to see over and done with, um, like yesterday … if not sooner.

    It will be interesting to see what she does next. Something tells me there won’t be room for her down in Paraguay …
