    Very accomplished, no argument, but like Powell, she succumbed to Bush's (and his fringe right neo-con buddies) gratuitous war in Iraq, and that cost lives, (besides treasure) lots of them. Nope. I'm glad it's not a real issue though.

    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
    That's nice, but she carried water for the liar in chief supporting his gratuitous war in Iraq which has caused an increase in global terrorism, and made America less safe. Her party affiliation isn't the problem, her character is. No, sorry but NO. Anyway, thankfully we're just talking hypothetically, as her hat isn't in the ring.

    Sure, I'd consider her. But not because she's a woman, and not because she's black. I'd consider her because she's smart and serious.

    I think she'd do a great deal more for the African American community than Obama has done.

    She is interested in other affairs, but would be willing to serve in an advisory capacity, I believe.

    President? Not on her list of priorities.

    She's repeatedly said she's not interested and also that she'd love being NFL Commissioner.

    She could have tried to make this world a better place, instead she did what she has done.

    She would, and I personally think that she'd make a great President. Which is probably why she won't run, she's too smart to want to do it.
