    Maybe she has some skeletons in her closet she doesn't want revealed.

    Or perhaps she just doesn't want that life?

    Colin Powell turned down several opportunities to run for the Presidency...he laughed and said his wife wouldn't let him. People generally respected that and stated that he wasn't running because he didn't want to.

    Why should Condi not deserve the same respect? Why should we automatically assume that she has some dirty little secret?


    (By the way, Nuc, I'm not picking on you, specifically with this chain of thought. It's just the second or third time I've heard that argument...and I wonder why it is being used for her and was not for Colin Powell...is it just her close relationship with Bush? Or do people know/suspect things that I have not read/heard about?)

    I heard the "skeletons in the closet" theory with Colin Powell as well. I seriously doubt there are skeletons in the closet of Condi or of Colin, if they were there they would have been found by now there are simply too many people willing to air other's dirty laundry in politics nowadays to let anybody slide.

    Not only that, but I still believe that she may be currently being prepared to run for VP. Politicians often say that they will not run, before they do.

    You can see from the positive statements I've made about her that I like her. However, in the modern world, a beautiful woman like her who has never been married and never linked with a man.........sorry, but I can't think of any others.

    Didn't Hillary say something to the same effect about not wanting to run for the Presidency? Yet, she's the frontrunner.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they play hard to get to rally enthusiasm in the base. That's only smart.
