Condoleeza Rice considering Presidential run
by Paula Powell
With the 2012 election around the corner, Republican luminaries are trying to convince former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice to run, to get the reasonable, right-leaning constituency out to the polls on election day. One of these party elders, who spoke on background so as not to be identified, and later criticized, says “Her patriotism is unquestioned, and she’s not a little used up, encrusted, broken white guy, like all our other candidates. She’s not some bitter old man downing statin medications, and Viagra, so that they can still co-mingle in regular society.”
Though Rice’s previous statements have professed little interest in a Presidential run, when compared with former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, and other names floated around, there is interest in convincing the former diplomat into changing her position.
“Whether it’s Romney or one of these others”, the source said, “or even if we could recruit one of our dream candidates, like Demi Moore or Ashley Judd, we know the grass roots really won’t accept anyone who is not a lot like Glenn Beck, and that’s why we are looking to field other candidates. That’s how we plan to proceed at this time.”
