Condi for Veep?

Economic conservatives are already wary of a McCain-Rice ticket.

The Drudge Report is playing big the new chatter that Condoleezza Rice wants to be John McCain's running mate. Not only are pro-lifers unenthused about Rice, given that she has called herself "mildly pro-choice," but economic conservatives are wary as well—even though Rice recently reached out to them by attending a regular breakfast held in D.C. by those folks. Here is what one well-placed economic conservative leader told me this morning about the speculation: "It worries me. We don't have any idea at all where she is on economic policy." Gov. Mark Sanford of South Carolina or Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Chris Cox are still probably the top choices of the small-government crowd.
