    It is moot anyway. Condi is brilliant. Too brilliant to ever run for public office to be frank.

    Yep.....Young Single black Women and even Married black women. As well as Independants that are fiscally conservative and socially moderate. The more it takes away from the Democrats and those Progressives the better off the Republican Party will be. Plus she will pull women from the Hispanics. Theres no getting around it.....she will definitely affect the Electorate!

    Hopefully she can be influenced to do what is Best for the Country.

    What was she qualified for? It certainly wasn't Secretary of State...

    Of all the cabinet level positions, and perhaps even including the Presidency, it is probably the most stressful and emotionally draining. I canít blame anyone for only wanting one term of that.

    She doesn't have the background.

    Neither did Warren. Not that it matters.

    Neither did Obama, and he proved it during his first term. Unfortunately, competence is apparently no longer a prerequisite for high office.

    I have been a fan of Hillary's for many years. She is brilliant, articulate, accomplished and has brought a breath of fresh air and excitement to the state department, working tirelessly to circle the globe in the performance of her duties. However, I learned years ago not to bother getting into a pissing match with those who do not, for whatever reason, like Hillary. No matter what I say I like about her, someone will shoot back something to the effect of "Oh, so it doesn't bother you to have a murderer representing our country around the world... it's not like Vince Foster really mattered"... or something equally inflammatory.

    Therefore I simply say that I like and respect the woman, and would be thrilled to see her in the oval office... and I'll leave it at that.

    Did you sit in on the planning meetings? Wow - tell us more.

    Is that anything like the 8 years for Bush I, 8 years for Bush II, and 8 years for Jeb?

    I remember when JFK was in office and the pundit line was "We'll have Jack for 8 years, then Bobby for 8 years, then Teddy for 8 years, and then it will be 1984."
