Condi in '08?

From Glen Reynolds, a link to Draft Condi Rice for the Prez nomination in 08.

I particularly like reason number 6:

6. She would also be the first unmarried President in over a century. All the supermarket mags could speculate as to whom she's dating now. (Okay, they could do it with Bill Clinton, too, but this would have a lot more decorum). Stolen glances at Prince Charles? Why did she appoint a 27 year old as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff? Paparazzi could pursue her as she sneaked away with a Marine guard. The Secret Service could detain the paparazi and "accidentally" drop them off the 14th Street Bridge. This gets better by the minute.

John Hawkins has his doubts, but I can't help but think Condi has all the tools for the job. And be honest, who doesn't want to see her debate Hillary?
