KILL 2 BIRDS WITH ONE STONE: CONDI RICE for VICE
While the democrats are busy making love to themselves for kicking out the first possible African American or female Presidential nominee, republicans have an opportunity to counter. Not only is Condaleeza Rice one of the most intelligent people on the planet, she is also black and a female. Democrats pride themselves on their monopolizing of civil rights. They claim to be the most diverse and tolerant of any political party. After all they are the party of John F. and Robert F. Kennedy, both champions of the civil rights movement. How can the republican of today not be racist nor sexist or be anything other than a rich spoiled bottom feeder that sucks the life out of the poor or opresses the minority? How is that possible? How can the good old days of "fighting against the machine" be gone? If one party represents the "populist" then the other party must be an evil corporate empire. If this philosphy is not true then what will the party of taking to the streets in protest, do for a cause? So as it is, republicans must remain the bigoted, rich, sanctimonious, non-caring beasts that keep the little guy down.
And so we have a gem to offer. Her name is Condaleeza Rice. She is one of the greatest intellectual minds of our time and she is a republican. She has also served under the most evil of republicans George W. Bush. Now there is sticking it to the man!!! Oh yea, oops, he is the man. Now what? What if the phants can offer our own historical poster child and claim to be the party of racial and gender equality? Or how about we recognize the candidates as capable people because of their acheivements and not the historical representatives of the left. Historical it is and amazing there is no doubt, but being judged by the "content of their character" will only surmount when the back patting stops and professing what is popular is secondary to quality.
I pick Condi Rice because of her incredible ability and her understanding of the world in which we live and the danger we face. I trust her with my future and the future of my family. She is a class act in a sea of classlessness. She in my opinion is more qualified than any other candidate offered on either side of the aisle. But alas, she is conservative and the true colors of the self-professed monopolizers of color-blindness and gender equality are in fact NOT idea-blind, nor am I. Could the philosophy of qualified vs. historified (I made that word up) make the case for support? Perhaps. Check your egos at the gate and stop living in the glory days of the hippie and come to the realization that republicans aren't "the man". THE MAN is an ignorant philosophy that keeps us all from progressing. So in the spirit of change and progress, let's kill 2 birds with one stone and give them more of the same with McCain and Rice!! History will surely be made!! Female, black and a republican! You can't get much better than that!!
