If Mitt thinks that having another northeastern Republican on the ticket is too much, he might want to consider two other possibilities.
1. Condaleeza Rice. There has been speculation recently that Rice is itching to get back into politics. If you have never done so, you really need to read about the former Secretary of State. She is brilliant! She graduated from college at the age of 19 and had her Ph.D. by 26. She was a tenured professor at Stanford before she got called up to the big leagues in the Bush administration. Unlike Newt Gingrich, Rice really is a brainy intellectual. Plus, she offers foreign policy expertise where Romney would otherwise have to rely on outside help. The Republican Party needs a VP who doesn't think that the Department of State is a waste of money. Republicans used to be good at diplomacy. We need to relearn our former skills. Having Rice at the number two spot would greatly help.
2. Susanna Martinez. The governor of New Mexico will not likely give New Mexico to Mitt. However, she could represent a change in the Republican Party, one that is a bit more focused on including Latinos in the fold. Martinez has carried out a lot of good educational reforms in her state. If Mitt does look at her, he needs to make sure that we do not have a repeat of you know who. Martinez has only been governor for two years. If Mitt thinks she can stand on stage against Biden (or Clinton?), then she might be a good addition.
Ok, so have it. Who do you prefer?
