NOT Condi (for VP), PLEASE, Senator McCain!

Speculation is rife and the media are humming with "what if" rumors that Senator McCain might pick President Bush's current Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice, to be his running mate.

My take is that Ms. Rice is NOT a good choice for Mr. McCain for the following reasons:

-She is pro-choice on abortion,
-She has shown herself to tilt more toward the Palestinians and Hezbollah than is appropriate,
-She has shown herself weak in her present position, having clearly permitted herself to be dominated by the career diplomats at State,
-She does not appeal to Conservatives, McCain's weak spot on the Republican side,
-She is heavily rumored to be a lesbian (which, in all fairness, may not be true at all), which cannot boost her standing with the Christian Right already upset with her stands on abortion and Israel.
