I like Condeleeza Rice very much.

I don't favor her as a presidential candidate because:

-She's never held elective office.  Only somebody like Eisenhower can make the presidency his/her first elective office.  Her lack of political experience would put her at a severe disadvantage.

-She has never given the slightest indication that she is interested in elective office.

I think this boom for Rice is produced mainly by the fact that she is female and black.  Republicans are looking to counter Hillary as the potential Democratic nominee.

If Rice were nominated as a Republican, she would surely get my vote.  I don't oppose her in principle.  I just don't think she really wants it, nor do I think it's suitable to make the presidency the first elective office you seek unless you have some MAJOR accomplishment in other areas.  I don't think secretary of state fits the bill.
