The pundits says it all comes down to Ohio, … therefore the stable amd well regarded Rob Portman has the inside track to the Vice-presidency. No Republican has ever lost the Buckeye state and gone to capture the White House…so a one state strategy seems to make sense. It seems to make even more sense to grab the senator now…with recent polling showing President Obama pulling to a modest lead in Ohio. The mainstream media has Portman penciled in on top…so…figuring here Portman will not be Romney’s choice. With Donald Trump blowing in Romney’s ear…thinking is were going to see a more Hollywood type pick from the beleagured Romney.
The star-in-waiting for the Republican party is Condoleezza Rice. The 56 year old former Secretary of State is a very popular Republican…and a pick that will energize the party. It’s also a choice that will provide the GOP with a fall insurance policy if Romney’s tax baggage continues to spiral out of control. Rob Portman would be an incredulous choice for president..but Condi Rice has the gravitas to give Obama a real challenge for presidency.
Polling numbers show only one candidate can shake up the demographics of the race. The Republicans are blessed to have a qualified black female to challenge president Obama. Let’s be honest, Condi Rice will change this race …and the Republicans will have a much better chance to win. Portman may be well liked in Ohio, but he’s not getting any support from black females in Cleveland….but Condi Rice will.
Many think that Condi Rice has no eyes on the White House..but I would beg to differ. She has positioned herself as a natural leader for the Republicans. She could be be the game changer that rescues the GOP from the Romney summer of discontent. It’s not a stretch to think that Condi Rice could be the next VP/ or even president of the United States. Will Condoleezza Rice rescue the Republicans?
