Levin on Condi as Possible Romney VP: ‘Pick a Damn Conservative’
On his Thursday radio show, conservative talker Mark Levin had a visceral reaction to the possibility reported early in the day of a Mitt Romney-Condoleezza Rice Republican ticket this November.
Although her name is mentioned as “near the top of the list” according to the Drudge Report, it would be a tactical mistake to select her, Levin said.
“This is bad politics,” Levin said. “Not only will Romney be defending Bain up through the election, now he’s going to have to be defending Bush and Bush’s policies right up through the election. This is a bad idea. No offense, Condi Rice. Didn’t they say throughout the Republican primary we had to nominate Romney because he’s the only one that could win? Why am I the only one who remembers that?”
Levin suggested that instead of putting up a problematic candidate like Rice, Romney should pick a conservative with experience.
