Condi for President (But Where's the Candidate?)

With Fred Thompson inching toward an official presidential candidacy, the "Draft Condi" movement is cranking up the volume on its candidate-less campaign for the White House.

Today, one of the leading -- and zaniest -- Condi for President grassroots groups sweeping the Internet, Think Condi, is putting out a press release titled "Fred Thompson Draft Movement Success, Think Condi Can Follow."

"I am pleased to see that Thompson's draft movement has succeeded," says Think Condi's national chairman Richard Holt. "Thompson was compelled to run for office by a grassroots network of supporters. This proves that a draft movement can, and will, succeed for Condi Rice as well."

Never mind that Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice has given them zero encouragement, Condistas, as they call themselves, are hell bent on getting their gal in the White House. (Though it seems that in this, the Year of the Gal, they want any gal but the one named Hillary to win. As the Rice2008.com site proclaims, 2008 will be "the year a woman wins the White House. We cannot allow that woman to be Hillary Clinton.")

Even a high-ranking Bush administration official has now given his winking endorsement of Campaign Condi to the Sleuth.

"I, like a lot of people, have begged Condi to run," Jim Wilkinson, who worked closely with Rice at the State Department before becoming chief of staff at Treasury, tells us. "Consider me a card-carrying member of the Draft Condi movement."

Holt, an obscure political consultant who once ran for the Ohio state legislature and briefly for Ohio's 6th Congressional District seat in the House, compares his Think Condi campaign to the 1952 movement that drafted Dwight Eisenhower to run for president. (For this analogy, try to gloss over the fact that Ike was a wildly popular war hero cajoled into running by leading politicians in his party and forget, please, that Rice was an architect of a war that has tanked the Bush administration's approval ratings.)

Asked if he really believed in his heart that Rice will run for president you could almost hear Holt's heart beating faster as he emphatically answered, "I do."

He latches on to something the secretary of state said in a recent NPR interview: "If I finish a four-year term there would have been three secretaries of state over 12 years and not a white male among us."

"She said IF," Holt said. "IF she finishes her term."

Has he reached out to Condi or her inner circle about the '08 campaign? No. "We're waiting until January 1. I thought it seemed like a good time," Holt said.

In the meantime, Holt and his sidekick, Crystal Dueker, are driving around the country in the Condi Mobile, a mobile home smothered in Condi bumper stickers and signs, trying to rally support for their Quixotic presidential campaign and get their "candidate" on the ballot in key states. This week, the group plans to name state chairs of Think Condi in New York and California.

All of which means that you can expect to see a lot of "Run, Condi, Run!" paraphernalia -- bumper stickers, buttons and, of course, the ubiquitous Condi thong -- in the coming weeks and months.

But it's doubtful we'll see Condi wearing any of this stuff herself.

As her friend Wilkinson says, "The problem is that our draftee wants to be drafted by the NFL or to go back to her team at Stanford, so I just don't see this happening."

And State Department spokesman Edgar Vasquez says Rice is "focused on being the best secretary of State and serving President Bush." Without mentioning Rice's stated interest in becoming the next NFL commissioner, Vasquez says the only potential career she has mentioned pursuing after the Bush administration is academia.

Sorry, Condistas. Looks like you're going to have a tough summit with your candidate -- if she shows up.

Barf! How is it that someone can be a complete incompetent and still have a following within the beltway? Remember Condi's role in 9/11; the Iraq fiasco. It's got to be all that free government money obscures reality. All you have to do is look at the photos of Ms. Rice strutting around Afghanistan with her head uncovered and you know how arrogant and oblivious she is. God save us when the Republicans are deciding between the serial-divorce-family-values-crowd, those who have played such people on tv and washed up pseudo intellectuals. Please let he go to Stanford and live out her life trying to justify her truth bending. Barf!

Condi Rice tells the story of her father taking her at the age of eight for a holiday from Washington DC. Mr Rice was convinced his daughter was exceptional. The two stood in front of the White House and Condi says her father told her, 'if you have enough determination one day you could work in the White House.' I am fairly sure, however, if Mr Rice went to all this effort he would not have inspired his daughter to just'work' in the White House.' I suspect Mr Rice was more specific about what her work would be. He wanted to inspire his daughter to run for President - and so the presidency has been her lifelong goal.

The top three Democratic candidates are all inadvertently paving the way for Condi. Hillary makes it possible for the first time in history for a female to be taken seriously as a presidential candidate. Obama does the same for African-Americans. And Gore, who will nominate late, will be acclaimed for his brilliant stealth campaign. A few weeks later, however, the same pundits will have to give even more acclaim to the greatest stealth candidacy ever. Go Condi!

Condoleeza Rice is a sycophant, and an incompetant one at that. A 'scholar' on soviet studies, she completely missed the collapse of the USSR. She did nothing about Bin Laden, even though people with lesser credentials than her correctly interpreted the meaning of the famous memo. In the middle east, she has done nothing and has been a spear-carrier for the bush crime family and their bunch of Machiavellian traitors. She got where she was because she was black and a woman, and that provided cover for anybody willing to criticize her for anything else than what she really is: a fool.

I think a Giuliani/Condi ticket would be almost unbeatable. She would give some foreign affairs credibility to a ticket already strong on terrorism, as well as pacify some on the Right who might be a bit uneasy with a Giuliani candidacy. Furthermore, a win by Giuliani/Rice would still be "historic", so moderates could still feel good about themselves without voting for Hillary or Obama.

Svengala ConDoll, Worst President Ever.
Svengala has been very shrewd. She was National Security ADVISER and, at one time, was proud to assert that, in that role, invading Iraq was her idea.
We don't hear that anymore. Nor do we now hear her outrageous lies that compare with Cheney's.
Her retreat has worked for her and we rarely hear anybody blame her for her devilish handiwork.
At home, she has denied all presidential ambition.
Now, you know that is always a lie from anybody. Anybody who is in politics, who doesn't somewhere in their psyche nurture that ambition probably doesn't deserve citizenship. Even ineligible aliens like Schwarzeneger admit to it.
More importantly and more significantly, in a recent interview in Russia, she said that she intended to run.
As usual, she quickly backtracked as when she called George, "My husband."
No slip of the tongue, but a bold assertion of her membership of the Bush (Royal) family dynasty and, implicity, of her royal right to rule.
Through impeachment, heart attack, whatever, Cheney goes; Bush appoints Svengala ConDoll as Vice-president; Negraponte, very familiar with Iran through his dirty Contra deals, becomes Secretary of State.
Something: impeachment, shooting with Cheney accident, certification as a lunatic, assassination... happens to (now expendable) Bush and the ConDoll is president.
In 2008, she runs as incumbent. The stupid, obsessed, insane and/or corrupt 30% who support Bush, vote for her, plus, for no sensible reason, lots of blacks and lots of women.
Lieberman, Nader and other Independents split the anti-Svengala vote and she wins at a canter.
The Worst President Ever is yet to come.

yes, the GOP members like Condi and Hillary said during the CNN debate that the Bush Administration does not believe in diplomacy. Then Hillary said Condi Rice just gives speeches around the world. That facts have been reported by the Washington Post over the past 2 years about great success by the hands of Secretary Rice. My conclusion is that Hillary and the other Democrats are afraid that if Condi Rice is on the ticket in 2008, that it breaks the strangle hold the Democrats seem to think they have with the African-American voters and the women voters. Sorry, but the Republican party just might fool all of the naysayers on this blog and push for Condi as our next VP for the 2008 race.

I needed a good laugh. Thanks. She has as much chance as that proverbial snowball in hell. I could not conceive of any person more ill equipped than Rice.

Maybe Condi has had success with her hands in some area (massaging egos perhaps) but she's failed absymally both as National Security Advisor and Secretary of State. Cheney's even outflanked her in the White House. If she wants to go back to Stanford or the NFL instead of becoming President then she's one of the few people in the White House not living in an fantasy world. Good for her.

I am a volunteer for the www.thinkcondi.net group and most of us paying for our own travel costs and promotional event items. I guess it might be hard to believe that real people with real jobs might contribute to the Condi for President effort. The buzz about voters who are not content with the 11 or even 12 candidates on the horizon makes a fact that people want a strong leader.
Fred Thompson might be a good fellow but I am keeping my eyes on the polls. Even Newt has said that if no CLEAR frontrunner is showing up on the polls, he would consider it.
Condi Rice does not have the luxury of saying if she would accept or not. She is dedicated to helping our president handle international issues right now.
But IF the Republican movers and shakers decide that Condi Rice is what the GOP needs, she will be asked to accept the will of the people.
Many of the GOP leaders admire her, like her, and would support her.
That is why the Democrats are worried.
Not only is Condi Rice a strong-willed person, she would show the diversity of the Republican party. (Even JC Watts is being asked to get back into the world of politics, and Lynn Swann is coming in as well.)
Fred Thompson is at 15% in the national polls. The same number Condi Rice had last year, a clear sign of support by the people.
As long as Newt is still able to say he can get into the race later, the same can be said for Condi Rice. We will be successful because the right of the people to select their own leaders is also a key factor in the 2008 race.
When 50% of the GOP base says NONE OF THE ABOVE, and when 45% of the people in the Marist poll of December 2006 say that they want Condi Rice to run, that has to have an effect on the minds of the other candidates.
The GOP field is still open, and some of the media say that is it is early. That leaves thousands of people standning on the sidelines waiting for another candidate----who could it be?

Speaking of Eisenhower, here we are at the 65th anniversary of D-Day, which was full of mistakes.
1) horrible weather
2) water vehicles sunk and thousands of US military died and weapons lost to the bottom of the French waters
3) over 5,000 men died in one day

It was still another year of battle before the Germans gave up in surrender. It was longer before Japan surrendered. Too bad so many of the people who try to blame each and every mistake in Iraq upon the head of Bush and Condi. Our nation was saved by the acts of FDR and Truman as well as Eisenhower. But the Democrats of today are like the anti-war leftists from 1972 dragging down their party. I can only pray our nation does not fall into their hands or we are doomed to Neville Chamberlain's appeasement and force us to be a weak nation.

Those who support our president will try to defend him. These are the same people who would buy tickets to the movie about murdering George Bush. These people are so angry that they fail to understand that our nation will never heal as long as they continue to write with hate and anger.
Is there any hope for our nation? Is there any leader who can help mend our nation?
I pray for someone who can bring all sides together, but like a civil war, the Democrats and the liberals will continue to thrist on the hatred as they seek blood in the water.
What sadness I feel as I read these nasty and mean comments against Secretary Rice.
She has security protection and it is worth the thousands of dollars to protect her from the hateful people who would wish harm upon her. You are in my prayers every day, Condi Rice. I pray for your safety and helping our president.

A Giuliani/Condi Rice ticket?!? As a proud member of the party heralded as tough on national security, I cannot fathom a GOP ticket that is weaker on national security than this one. Such a ticket is much more likely to render Giuliani's "death threat" to the American people a reality than the election of a Democrat as President in 2008. Buying into the notion that Giuliani somehow possesses greater expertise than any other GOP candidate in waging the Global War on Terror simply because he served as mayor of a city attacked on 9/11 is just as ridiculous as crediting Condi Rice with foreign policy know-how merely because of her positions as NSA and Secretary of State. In fact, the leadership experiences of each individual and their utter failures in responding to the 9/11 terrorist threat--namely, Giuliani's unwillingness to follow FBI recommendations after the 1993 WTC attacks or to provide firefighters with interoperable radios, as well as Condi Rice's decision to ignore a memo laced with 9/11 warning signs--suggest quite the contrary. Neither is remotely qualified to lead the United States' in the fight against terror.

In all seriousness: How can anyone who was the National Security Advisor and the Secretary of State for this administration be seriously discussed as a candidate for President without being called to account for their participation in the foreign policy and war failures? We don't even know what she feels about the domestic side of being President, or does that not matter anymore? She'd make a horrible President of the United States - this country cannot be so naive to absolve her from all of this, can it?

Well Tough on Terror, it is relatively easy to point out shortcomings, "Neither is remotely qualified to lead the United States' in the fight against terror." So who amongst the leading candidates of today fit the bill? The Dems are all most likely to be present day Neville Chamberlines, negotiating agreements not worth the paper they're written on while the enemies of our culture and beliefs continue to attack. Which one of THEM will be tough on terror? The Republicans wouldn't show the leadership to close the borders so who's going to stop the terrorists from getting in? The Dems won't because they're already counting the votes to turn red states blue. Most Republicans won't, they're counting their share of the profits their election contributing constituents will get from cheap labor. Name a LEADING candidate who you believe will put the people of this country ahead of personal ambition or the special interest groups that support them. We're no worse off with Giuliani and Rice than any of the others who has a real chance to win (and perhaps better off because they MAY have learned something) unless someone else steps forward.

In response to R Man's comments: On the Republican side, while I tend to disagree with some of his other policies, I would trust Senator McCain to effectively wage the Global War on Terror (GWOT) while respecting civil liberties. Unfortunately, there may not be another Republican candidate out there who is willing to balance counter-terrorism policies with consulting the UN, fostering cooperation with our allies, and avoiding acts of torture. This is one of the reasons why I may be a conservative voting Democrat come November 2008.

On the Democrat side, while he may not raise enough money to last long in this race, Governor Bill Richardson has proven during his stint as US Ambassador to the UN and through his leadership in critical negotiations with North Korea, Sudan, etc. that he possesses the foreign policy know-how to wage effectively the GWOT while adopting a crucial multilaterist approach and respecting human rights. For these reasons, if Richardson becomes a VP candidate--even to a Hillary Clinton or a Barack Obama, both of whom have yet to prove that they are tough on terror--this ticket would be the obvious pick.

Tough on Terror. Good response. Can't go along with Hillary & Barrack unless they use a Richardson type the same way Cheney is used by Bush. I think there is clear evidence that those of us who believe in individual liberty must be prepared to deal with a religious movement that has an implacable agenda to dominate this planet. We should use reason and reasonable approaches with Islamists who are willing to reason with us in an honest forthright way. We must also be prepared to judiciously apply military force and violence to deter and prevent violent acts by those of them who choose those methods to achieve their goals. Unfortunately the Imams who preach and indoctrinate their followers with beliefs that support violence as an acceptable means of achieving their aims make this an obvious requirement on our part. I wonder why so many of our leaders and the mainstream media seem largely unconcerned about the long term intent of many Islamic leaders and their followers. Is their PC nature causing them to stick their heads in the sand instead of facing reality?
