For someone who pushes the need for “Constitutional Conservatives” in our government, Sarah Palin herself seems ignorant of what the Constitution actually provides.
Palin says that Condi Rice would be fine for Mitt’s veep, despite being pro-choice, because “We need to remember, though, that it’s not the vice president that would legislate abortion, and that would be Congress’s role.”
Except, of course, that the vice president is president of the Senate and casts a vote in case of a tie.
Palin’s position is not what we’re hearing from pro-life groups, who have been going nuts about the Rice possibility, which isn’t going to happen.
Dump Romney, nominate Rice, save the world!
But could the racist GOP tolerate yet another president with African American blood? I think not.
Rice doesn’t want it, and the GOP wouldn’t nominate someone who is pro-choice, even “mildly” pro-choice as she has described herself.
It would be cool to have two African-American nominees.
