I went into my bosses office and asked him what kind of nonsense is on Drudge (we always argue about politics). This is what I saw: ROMNEY NARROWS VP CHOICES; CONDI EMERGES AS FRONTRUNNER
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.Now I would have bet anything that the candidate would be Rob Portman or Paul Ryan... BUT NO! The Republicans decided that since the First Bush Admin. worked out so well.... They would try again.
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.
Apparently, Mitt did pick the anti-Palin (Rice is intelligent and well informed for her other faults) and he is going for trying to get both the Women's vote AND the Black Vote despite his disaster at the NAACP yesterday and the ongoing assault on Women's Right that the Republicans are engaging in daily.
Anyway, sorry for the short diary but I thought this would be of interest.
