Condoleezza Rice Endorses Mitt Romney
11 months ago
Still no word on VP talk.
Looks like that first black president smell has worn off.
After sending support and congratulations to President Barack Obama in 2008, former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is endorsing Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
"If America is going to rebuild its strength at home, rebuild its sense of who we are, it needs a leader that also understands how really exceptional the United States of America is, and is not afraid to lead on the basis of that exceptionalism," Rice donors at recent Romney fundraiser in California. "The only thing that people dislike more than unilateral American leadership is no American leadership at all."
There have been whispers of Romney picking Rice as his VP and running mate to try and secure women's votes, some of the black vote and to boost his his foreign policy credentials. But she has repeatedly rejected the idea.
"I think we should go another direction and find somebody who really wants to be in elected office," she told Fox News in March. "How many ways can I say it? Not me."
