I think Perry or Bachmann. Huntsman can stand alone on foreign policy credentials. Romney and Huntsman definitely don't need a pro-choice VP. Paul would never have her on the ticket nor would she want to be on his ticket. She could benefit Gingrich with the woman vote.

What are your thoughts. And do you think she should be a viable option on the shortlist?

Perry or Bachmann since they are incompetent on foreign policy.

This, though she'd obviously never accept.

Is it excessive to hold a politician's feet to the fire for giving his base the run around at every turn?

Barack Obama.  Just in case he wants to shore up the black vote.

No way is Gadhafi in heaven, literally.  Wink

In order:

1.  Perry. It would give the ticket foreign policy credentials and gravitas.  I would also help modify the "good ole boy" Southerner image, and help with women.

2.  Paul.  He needs better foreign policy credentials. 

3.  Santorum.  It would give him better foreign policy credentials and indicate he was not hard right on social issues.

4.  Bachman.  Same as Santorum.  The major disadvantage would be two women on the ticket.

[I think 2, 3, and 4 are impossible.  The candidate would never accept them and Rice would not run with them.]

5.  Romney.  He's not too bad on foreign policy, but Rice would boost that.  Both, however, are seen as to middle of the road on social issues.

6.  Gingrich.  Helps with foreign policy, but both are intellectual.  Maybe they would get the endorsement of Adlai Stevenson's ghost.

7.  Huntsman.  Does virtually nothing for either of them.

I agree with Bush 04.  Could you have imagined what 2008 would have looked like?

She would be great if Paul actually did pick her, but no way in hell would she accept, nor would he offer. I think its Romney.

Perry.  Won't happen.

I could see her as NSA or SECDEF, SECSTATE for a lesser candidate.  She won't be a VP candidate.
