Condi for Veep?

After the rumors began circulating on the Internet that Mitt Romney was considering choosing Condoleezza Rice for his Vice Presidential running mate, most conservatives, with the notable exception of Sarah Palin, felt the choice would not be acceptable.

From,Pro-Lifers: Pro-Abortion Views Disqualify Condi Rice as Romney VP. One blogger wrote, Condi Rice? Absolutely Not! Mark Levin tells Romney to stop playing it safe and to “pick a damn conservative”.

This list of naysayers goes on and on.

I have to admit, I don't like the idea of Condi Rice, her pro-choice views don't sit well with me. In a WAPO opinion piece,Jonathan Bernstein says Romney isn't likely to pick Rice anyway.

But, suppose he were to do the unimaginable....... would Romney's selection of Condi Rice prevent me for voting for him? Unlikely. I'm not going to vote for Obama and not casting a vote for Romney is a vote for Obama.

To paraphrase former Democratic Governor of Louisiana, Edwin Edwards, the only way Romney could lose my vote would be if he were caught in "bed with either a dead girl or a live boy". Judging by the state of this country, Romney would probably get most Democrats to cross-over vote for him should he be found in such a predicament.
