    What makes somebody a Great Secretary of State does not necessarily make them a Great President.

    Not my decision, but I'd say no. I have respect for the woman and her style, but she's said repeatedly she's not interested and I take her at her word.

    That said, hasn't America suffered enough from selecting a supposedly brilliant academic as President the past 6 plus years?
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    She's made it very clear that she's not interested. Too bad, since she would be hands down the best President we have had in a 100 years or more. Smart, lots of good leadership experience, knows her way around The Hill, well respected internationally. I'd love to see her in the Oval Office, but the chances of it happening are very slim since she's stated that she's not interested in the job.

    I agree. Brilliant person, but would get annihilated by the politics of trying to run for President.

    Wait, the one who said nobody could have predicted that planes would be used as missiles.

    The one who said that the sixteen words in Bush's SOTU Address that Joe Wilson said were lies, should have been acknowledged as false.

    The one who said, do we have to wait for the smoking gun in the form of a mushroom cloud over a US city.

    No. Let's not recycle losers.

    Not going to happen.

    When people think of her they think of G.W. Bush.

    Case closed.

    Pretty much. I had thought of her as George's lap dog, not as cute though.

    Well, she is very well educated, a very intelligent person, obtuse and some other big word I can't think of at the moment, but she plays the piano very well too. As presidential candidate or even as VP, yikes!

    Without rhetoric or "she's a conservative, so I hate her" type arguments, explain to us why she wouldn't make good President. Here's a list of her stances on a variety of issues. Take the time to get educated on what she believes and then make a decision. My guess is that you won't and will use something along the lines of "I wouldn't waste my time with that." as an excuse.

    Condoleezza Rice on Abortion
    Condoleezza Rice on Foreign Policy
    Condoleezza Rice on Budget & Economy
    Condoleezza Rice on Civil Rights
    Condoleezza Rice on Education
    Condoleezza Rice on Energy & Oil
    Condoleezza Rice on Environment
    Condoleezza Rice on Families & Children
    Condoleezza Rice on Free Trade
    Condoleezza Rice on Gun Control
    Condoleezza Rice on Health Care
    Condoleezza Rice on Homeland Security
    Condoleezza Rice on Immigration
    Condoleezza Rice on Technology
    Condoleezza Rice on Principles & Values
    Condoleezza Rice on Tax Reform
    Condoleezza Rice on War & Peace
    Condoleezza Rice on Welfare & Poverty
