McCain's VP choice

From The New Yorker:

If McCain really wants to have it all—to refurbish his maverick image without having to flip-flop on the panderings that have tarnished it; to galvanize the attention of the press, the nation, and the world; to make a bold play for the center without seriously alienating “the base”—then he can avail himself of a highly interesting option: Condoleezza Rice.

I couldn't agree more; I think Condi would be a pretty ideal VP candidate in every conceivable way. In addition to everything else which was said in the original article, it would be a clear statement that you could elect someone black and female to a powerful position, without having to choose between an empty-rhetoric panderer or a socialist moron.
