Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice endorsed presidential candidate Mitt Romney at an exclusive fundraiser Wednesday evening. The fundraiser was hosted at the home of Charles and Ann Johnson in Hillsborough, California; attendee’s admission ranged from $2,500 to $50,000.
There has already been great speculation on who would make a great Vice-President for Mitt Romney; some polls show Condoleezza Rice as a favorite. Mitt Romney lacks strength in foreign policy and is sure to come under attack from President Obama for his inexperience. Strategically, Rice could strengthen his platform because of her foreign policy credentials while in the White House. She would also pull in Bush supporters, women voters, and part of the African-American population.
Rice currently teaches at Stanford University, where she formerly served as provost. Post-White House, Rice and several associates from the Bush Administration started a consulting firm for U.S. businesses looking to invest in specific markets. Rice has already made it known that she isn’t looking to run as Mitt Romney’s running mate. When asked whether she would take the position, she noted that she favors policy over politics and
“I think we should go another direction and find somebody who really wants to be elected in office.” “How many ways can I say it? Not me.”
If Condoleezza Rice had a change of heart, do you think this could be a good match-up for President Obama and VP Biden?
