Condoleeza Rice For President? No.

I would no more vote for Condi Rice for President than I would vote for Henry Kissinger. And for the same reason. A leader may be a diplomat and even a policy wonk, but a diplomat or a policy wonk is rarely a leader. The Presidency is more than the sum of its policy initiatives.

Plus, she's single. I believe that the burdens of the office of the Presidency are too heavy for anyone to bear alone, no matter how smart and energetic he or she is. To have that awesome responsibility weighing down on you everyday for four years, and to have no one to turn to in personal moments....can't be done.
