    his campaign was flat, and headed nowhere until palin became the semi-official spokesmodel for republican values
    she was a net plus to that ticket
    That is exactly the value she brought. I don't think he was going to win anyway. Sarah certainly didn't hurt him, and she probably brought him a lot of votes he wouldn't have gotten without her.

    Hillary don't stand a Chance.....Condi wins the Debates, Speeches.....and she won't have to shed a tear to win any of them. That's not even looking at all of Hillary's Garbage she carries with her. That's just on the Knowledge of how things work. No Re-set button for Hillary here. That's why Hillary don't say anything about her to much. Don't want to end up playing the fool for the Cameras. Like she always does.

    Tearing up Democrats isn't what Condi has to worry about.....that's a given!

    Stupid real life.
    Since the building industry collapsed and I'm semi-retired (frequently unemployed), I've got much more time on my hands.
    Tragically, most of my reading time is wasted on Elmore Leonard tomes.

    I don't ever read newspapers anymore. I scan our local paper here to see who got arrested for soliciting prostitutes but that's about it.
    Gotta keep up on the crime stats.
    I blame Elmore Leonard.


    By the way, I'm still scarred from Shirley's tales of threesomes with her and Jack Cassidy and young Vegas showgirls. Who knew Mrs. Partridge was so wild?
    Good looking woman.
    I blame Jack Cassidy.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    my impression is condi has a fear of failure
    i don't know that she will take on an assignment unless she is absolutely certain she will accomplish it
    and if my unscientific opinion is correct, that might keep her out of the race

    but the woman has an impeccable CV
    she has experience and expertise
    she has criticism from cheney and rumsfeld, which will help distance her from the failed dicknbush regime
    and she has an open field; there is no one on the GOP horizon who could effectively challenge her if she did choose to run

    a black woman. cuts into the demo assurance of the black vote
    has equal standing with hillary regards the womens' vote
    and i would not be surprised if she could not acquire a larger portion of the centrist vote, compared to clinton
    that's the segment which decides elections
    republican turnout is stronger than demo turnout
    suspect that will especially be the case with a hillary candidacy. where is the motivation to turn out the vote
    don't think the demos could effectively demonize condi
    and then there is that intangible element of charisma. while bill had it in spades, hillary has none. condi tops her there, too
    here is where i believe condi has the edge. she is interested in policy - NOT politics. that is a plus in today's anti-politician environment. our nation craves someone who can effect and articulate sound public policy. in contrast, hillary is a political operative. not an idea generator. not a person who inspires with her solutions. this quality is what makes condi the republican party's ideal candidate today. the party should draft her


    condi running against hillary is the demo nightmare scenario to holding the white house in 2016
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    You have an extremely short memory NP. Everyone knew it was going to be a close race between Hilary and Obama.

    You cannot compare Palin to Rice. Rice has a brain, something that Palin is lacking.

I was looking for a Marsha Blackburn type if they were hell bent on picking a woman.
    Its not the Katie Couric interview to which I refer. Yes, she did very poorly on that show, but its just one show. Anyone can have a bad day.

    Its her general body of "work" (if you want to call it that), that is lacking. She is simply a populist that speaks in cliches and cute jargon without any real ideas about anything. There is nothing more shallow than a Sarah Palin speech. It usually lacks the originality and thought of a bad high school commencement address (you know, canned and predictable)... I do admit, however, she can deliver her triteness with great flair.

    As I pointed out earlier, I do think Palin is actually reasonably intelligent or she would not work (game) the system as well as she does. She is, however, woefully uneducated on policy, particularly international policy AND intellectually lazy. This makes her ignorant, which certainly comes across as stupid.
