As I've said before, I can't see it, but I'd like to see it:
Someone like Condi Rice doesn't go to Grover Norquist's den to talk about the Annapolis Middle East peace process. She's going to secure her future in Republican politics and to position herself as a 'potential' VP candidate on the McCain ticket.
Rice has many of the requirements it is said McCain needs -- younger, more conservative -- but she is too foreign-policy oriented to give the ticket balance on such domestic issues as the economy, which McCain has admitted he doesn't know much about. But that's an electability issue, not a leadership issue. Even in the No. 2 slot of a failed McCain bid, Rice would be in a good position to be the logical challenger to a Clinton or Obama second term.
