    Okay, hear me out....just got home from a dinner party and im a bit drunk. I ended up on the couch with one of my right-ish friends talking nominees and finally I say "Ok! Who do you think could beat the Big O Boggy Man" He thought for a sec and said...Condi

    I think he was drunk too but how about it rightys? I admit I know very little about her but at a glance so to speak it would seem that she could neutralize some of those pesky heart strings that you seem to think are so central to Obama's popularity.

    Cynical NoE says anyone that has ever been on Meet the Press could be convinced with enough ego stroking

    She has made it very clear she is not interested.

    Which is a major pity.

    From what I understand, her stance on such things as abortion and economics would probably not be a huge help in the election. Her personality and politics are very close to such folks as Daniel Moynahan and Jean Kirkpatrick. Her being a republican is mostly a relic of her growing up in Birmingham AL and her intense dislike of the Democrats she grew up around, like Bull Conners and George Wallace.

    Which, in my humble opinion, would disqualify her from the office. Why would we want a President who can be manipulated by stroking their ego?

    I'd rather have a President who says what he means and means what he says (or she). I'm tired of arrogant, dishonest, corrupt people representing me.

    I respect Chris Christie because i know when he says he is not going to run, he isn't going to run. I don't respect the people who say they won't run and then jump in the race a short time later nearly as much.

    I respect Ms. Rice as well, because I think she is an honorable woman and when she says she doesn't want to run, she isnt going to run.

    I understand people change their minds. And if they do, that's fine. I just dislike games. I dislike corruption. I dislike people who are in it for their ego. Probably why I didnt like Obama or McCain last cycle. I want my leaders to be a servant, not a master.

    Oddly enough, not wanting the job is probably the best qualification for the job.

    No.

    No former Bush, Clinton or Obama administration members for President.
