    Rice Rice Baby

    Mitt has a chance at a game changer for VP.

    I think he should but I think he won't.

    I kind of hope she doesn't. Politicians are slimy people, I have too much respect for her to have to see her in a debate with a retard like joe Biden. Or have to defend a candidate like romney, who has taken positions on everything.

    Shes not a politician, she has a terrific family story, shares smart, loyal and I believe she handled herself with class through a lot of things that weren't necessarily her fault. As far as government officials are concerned, she is in a class of her own.

    Why is loyalty a good quality? Wouldn't you prefer someone who does their own thing, and sought after being right, versus supporting the wrong course of action?

    Are you suggesting that loyalty is a bad quality for a person to have? There were many decisions that rice made/followed during her tenure. If you are suggesting that I shouldn't think highly of her based on one screw up (Iraq). I think she deserves more credit than that. I think in most political circles she is looked upon very fondly, much like Powell.

    I think loyalty is terrifying when it comes to Presidents. Loyal to pay back favors for campaign contributors, loyal to the party line, and so on.

    That one screw up is a pretty big one. It casts a negative mark on everyone involved.

    You have to put it into perspective. There are no politicians that I would consider quality individuals. They are power hungry and easily manipulated. Rice is one of the few I admire. I even kind of like people like Dennis kucinich. Not because I agree with him, but his beliefs are very principaled and he typically doesn't bend to pressure.

    I've said this on here before, but I think your giving the average Willard Mitt Romney supporter too much credit as open-minded, free thinking, culturally advanced citizens.

    Let's play a game, it's called "Find the Black guy"















    If you want all the elderly, & white middle-America vote you can get, you don't make a women your VP, you don't make a black man your VP, and you certainly don't make a black-woman your VP; regardless of qualifications. It's the sad, sad truth, & it won't happen.

    Indeed, a black woman would cost Romney far too much of his base. It would erase his racial advantage over Obama.
