Laura Bush explains why Condi doesn't want to be president
Ouch.

<snip>

The President also said there is no doubt in his mind that a woman candidate could be president, and the First Lady agreed. Mrs. Bush referenced Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and noted that while she would be a "really good candidate", Rice is not interested in the job.

"Probably because she is single, her parents are no longer living, she's an only child. You need a very supportive family and supportive friends to have this job," the First Lady said.

A. Yes, except for Condi Rice. Let me elaborate on her pathetic family situation.

2. So when Condi finally resigns
Edited on Fri Dec-15-06 05:44 AM by DoYouEverWonder
she can't say it was to spend more time with her family.

Nice passive-agressive way Laura let's her know that Condi is certainly not part of the Bush family, even if she does thinks the pResident is her husband.

4. translation:
'probably because the republican base will not vote for a single woman (or man) - presidents need to be 100% heterosexual and MARRIED'

11. Perhaps they could sell her to the fundies as a virgin.
Anything short of that would make here a sinner.

7. IMHO Laura knows Rice is Gay
Probably because she is single

While she is older, she is attractive so why else do you not hear about her and her SO...

17. That's what I took from the statement also.
Laura: Condi doesn't have the loving support of a wonderful family and friends like ******I****** do.

9. What the?
A women can't be successful unless she has a family? Is this Laura Bush for real? Has anyone told her that its 2006? Laura Bush must not have any self confidence if she thinks she needs a family to be successful.

14. Wow. Way to have the Bushies send you an unmistakable message.
"Don't run, Condi." Gee, Condi, all that slavish loyalty really paid off for you, huh.
