    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.
    Speaking isn't her forte. Her delivery is what draws people in.

    Personally I find her fascinating. I think a lot of other people do too. It's been 6 years and she can still fill a thread of posts.

    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

    Excellent Post JB. ..... Informative

    That is a good assessment. And its why she should not be president or vice president for that matter.

    Bottom line. Condolezza Rice is not going to run for president. She's not the politician type. She's an intellectual and likely cherishes her privacy. That's my feel on her.

    I guess that's why Romney is at home and Obama is in the White House.

    Probably the biggest mistakes that Condi Rice made in her life was supporting the neo-con's totally unnecessary war in Iraq and her support of the use of torture.

    The American people will never send this woman to the White House.

    Don't take my word for this, just wait and see what happens.

    I'm beginning to think that Palin is a closet liberal.

    Well, never say never, but I am a longtime admirer of Dr. Rice, and I've always thought she really meant it when she said she wasn't interested in the Presidency but was interested in being NFL Commissioner. I'm glad that she's speaking publicly because her opinions are worth considering whether I agree with them or not. But she does cherish her relative privacy, and so I'd be surprised if she has changed her mind.

    There may be many differences between the candidates but the Left remains the same. They will continue to attack any Republican candidate in the most simple and vile terms while ignoring the real issues of what's best for America's interests..
