With Barack Obama running for president there has been much discussion about it being time for America's first African American president.
With Hillary Clinton running for president there has been much discussion about it being time for America's first female president.
I agree that it is time for both, that would be great, but not either of these two!
If McCain has to be president, and I'm not saying he can beat Obama, then so be it. I hope he chooses Condoleezza Rice as his running mate and she becomes a candidate for president in 2012. I can understand her not running for prez this year, she has to get some distance from her current boss. McCain is 71 years old, one term will be more than enough, thank you.
It would be harder to find a sharper, more competent woman than Condoleezza Rice. I think she would make a very good president. The fact I am looking ahead to 2012 reveals how exasperated I feel concerning 2008.
