Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice front-runner for Romney VP?

Late Thursday evening, Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign launched a new fundraising drive, ‘Meet The VP’ — just as Romney himself has narrowed the field of candidates to a handful, sources reveal.

And a surprise name is now near the top of the list: Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice!

The timing of the announcement is now set for ‘coming weeks’.

It was Condi who received two standing ovations at Romney’s Utah retreat a few weeks ago, and everyone left with her name on their lips.

Rice made an extended argument for American leadership in the world.

    A good choice in my opinion..Her or Portman..
    Rubio would be OK, but he’s not eligible to take over should something happen to Romney..He’s not a natural born citizen..

  • Who says Mitt is in? Dr. Ron Paul for president.

    Romney is too much of a war monger to be classified as a “conservative” as it is. Adding Rice to the ticket would signal an intention to restart attacking, invading, and occupying countries against the advice of our own defense analysts. I really hate it when the parties give us two obvious losers and call it a “choice”.

  • If anyone does NOT vote (to make a statement?), or does NOT like Mitt, they are in effect, desiring (guaranteeing) to keep Obama? That logic escapes me. Is Everyone that much better off today, than they were 3.5 years ago? Does Everyone actually believe that this (legally unprecedented questionable) sitting president has the best interests of the historically FREEDOM Loving US Citizen in mind…as he signs a new ‘Executive Order’ every day?
