I wouldn't vote for Condi on either REP or DEM ticket. Condi has new Security/Diplomatic post. This is her task. Can she break her "mold" and deliver high performance elsewhere in the cabinet? She is HIGHLY qualified in what she does, as evidenced by her PhD. The Presidency is an entirely different ORGANISM.
I just can't see Condi representing the people adequately on issues such as Health Care, and Education, and Social Security WHETHER democratic or republican. Unfortunately, what we have here is a great "PERSON" but she simply isn't multi-faceted enough.
AGAIN, we blacks have to remember, when the First Black Presidential Candidate appears, that person will win the appeal of blacks AND whites because that individual will have depth, and multiple layers of appeal. Condi is not who I would endorse, whether Republican or Democratic.
The First Black President of the United States will need to convince ALL people heshe is representing that his/her "Blackness" has nothing to do with why "Black" people should vote for him/her. There is no such thing as a Free Lunch.
