President John McCain


Vice President Condoleeza Rice

Can this actually happen?

Will the The EU-NATO-Israel Triangle gain from this combo?

Briefing on Recent Africa Trip and Upcoming Asia Trip
Secretary Condoleezza Rice
Washington, DC
February 22, 2008

QUESTION: There’s been several articles written about Condoleezza Rice for Vice President. Some have called it a Republican dream team with you on the ticket. If asked, would you be willing to consider accepting --

SECRETARY RICE: I’ve said all along what I’m going to do. You can all come and visit me in California.

QUESTION: So yes or no? Not a chance?

SECRETARY RICE: I have always said that the one thing that I have not seen myself doing is running for elected office in the United States. I have -- for elected office -- because I didn’t even run for high school president. You know, it’s not in my genes.

But look, there will be very good people running for the American people to make their choices. I will be making my choice as a voter, and that’s going to be fun after a campaign in 2000 in which I was extremely involved, after the reelection in 2004 where I was National Security Advisor and so not involved as directly but obviously with an interest in how it came out. And I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing as Secretary of State to see if we can use the last few months, as the President has put it, to sprint to the finish because there’s a lot of work to do. This has been a really monumental period in American foreign policy. As a student of foreign policy, I don’t know that I’ve seen many that have been more consequential. And I’m looking forward to ending this period with the United States having faced a lot of the challenges that came out of not just September 11th but the rapid change that’s going on around the world, and I’ll be paying attention to that.
