IS CONDI RICE POSITIONING HERSELF FOR VP?

According to CBS News (per article below), “there is a tantalizing new tidbit in the speculation over who will be John McCain's vice presidential pick: Steve Clemons reports that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is speaking at a high-powered Republican gathering run by Grover Norquist this morning.”

Why is this significant? According to Clemons' tipster: "Someone like Condi Rice doesn't go to Grover Norquist's den to talk about the Annapolis Middle East peace process. She's going to secure her future in Republican politics and to position herself as a 'potential' VP candidate on the McCain ticket."

Conducting Talk Show interviews on this topic is Mary Beth Brown, biographer of books on Condoleezza Rice (“Condi”/ Thomas Nelson Publishing) and the New York Times and USA Today bestselling book, “Hand of Providence: The Strong and Quiet Faith of Ronald Reagan.”

During your interview, Mrs. Brown explains how McCain's veep pick will come under particular scrutiny because of his age , 72 when sworn in, making him the oldest president ever to enter the office. That bit of political reality has led to speculation that McCain will choose a young running mate, possibly Condoleezza Rice.

Furthermore, Brown suggests that one of the shrewdest moves John McCain could make would be to pick Condoleezza Rice as his Vice Presidential running mate to offer on articulate, intelligent and experienced person who also happens to be the first black and first female vice president in history, should that ticket prevail.

Is Rice Positioning Herself As A Possible Veep Pick?
Posted by Brian Montopolis

(AP) There is a tantalizing new tidbit in the speculation over who will be John McCain's vice presidential pick: Steve Clemons reports that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is speaking at a high-powered Republican gathering run by Grover Norquist this morning.

Why is this significant? According to Clemons' tipster: "Someone like Condi Rice doesn't go to Grover Norquist's den to talk about the Annapolis Middle East peace process. She's going to secure her future in Republican politics and to position herself as a 'potential' VP candidate on the McCain ticket."

McCain's veep pick will come under particular scrutiny because of his age – he would be 72 when sworn in, the oldest president ever to enter the office. That fact has led to speculation that McCain will choose a young running mate – possibly, as the Associated Press reported yesterday, 47-year-old Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty.

McCain has other considerations as well, however. Conservatives skeptical of McCain are looking for him to pick someone to shore up their support – perhaps former rival Mitt Romney, with whom, it's worth noting, he had an acrimonious relationship on the campaign trail. Other names on thought to be on the short list include another former rival, Mike Huckabee, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, and South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford.


ABOUT THE BOOK: “CONDI” BY MARY BETH BROWN…

Condoleezza Rice rose from humble beginnings in racially segregated Alabama to the halls of academia, to the corridors of power in Washington, DC.

The first-ever African American woman secretary of state, she has been called the “Warrior Princess” because of her poise and gracefulness combined with steely nerve and determination.

But how much do we really know about her? What influences help shape this extraordinarily accomplished woman? And who planted the roots of her deep faith?

Answering these questions and more is Mary Beth Brown, author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling book, “Hand of Providence: The Strong and Quiet Faith of Ronald Reagan.”

After years of exhaustive research, Mary Beth Brown now brings us her latest book, “Condi: The Life of a Steel Magnolia” (Thomas Nelson, January 2008). In this gripping and inspiring book, Brown artfully explores the roles played in the life of Condoleezza Rice by her parents, mentors, and her faith and how they prepared her for her current position of power and global influence.

“Condi: The Life of a Steel Magnolia” is the most complete biography on Condoleezza Rice to date. Not only will readers get to know Condi through vivid anecdotes and fascinating details, but they’ll learn her wisdom for success that can applied to their own lives including:

• The power of optimism
• The power of humility
• Understanding the privilege of struggle and adversity
• How to harness talents to help others
• Creating opportunity through education
