Condoleeza Rice is starting to stand up and speak out, even though she was incredibly silent during the last election. Some are thinking that this means that she is seriously considering running as the Vice President for Mitt Romney. We think that she’s running, and if she does run and win, she’d be the first black female to achieve such a powerful position in the White House. Would African Americans celebrate Condi’s success in the same way that we are celebrating Obama? Probably not. But the race would be an interesting one to watch.
KultureKritic.com tells more:
There is no mistaking that Condoleezza Rice is a staunch neo-conservative, but during the 2008 campaign, she remained largely silent about her choice in the election. Well, the 2012 cycle is different, very different.
Rice has already come out front to say that she believes George W. Bush deserves a great deal of credit for the path he provided Obama to follow, and the tools he employed, even going so far to say that Bush deserves much of the credit for the assassination of Osama bin Laden. Now, in an editorial for the Financial Times, Rice offers scathing criticism of President Obama:
The rush to court adversaries has overshadowed relations with trusted allies. Our engagement with Europe has been sporadic and sometimes dismissive. Strategic ties with India, Brazil and Turkey have neither strengthened nor deepened in recent years. Hugo Chávez and the Iranians have bitten off the extended hand of friendship.
