Condi for VP? Not Happening Captain

Matt Drudge, the proprietor of what is arguably the most influential news website, The Drudge Report, is reporting that Mitt Romney is seriously considering Condoleezza Rice as his running mate. TheDC’s Paul Conner reports:

“In a story that cited anonymous sources, the conservative news aggregator Drudge wrote that the former Massachusetts governor has narrowed his list of choices and that Rice, who currently runs the political action committee ShePAC, is a leading candidate. ‘It was Condi who received two standing ovations at Romney’s Utah retreat a few weeks ago, and everyone left with her name on their lips,’ the report reads. ‘Rice made an extended argument for American leadership in the world.’”

The Romney campaign could be putting her name out there to see how conservatives react. But it is hard to see how Romney, who himself was once avowedly pro-choice, could pick a pro-choice running mate for the presidential ticket of what is still a staunchly pro-life party.
