Of course I'd prefer Mitt to pick a more pro-life VP, but I'd still take Mitt/Condi over Barry/Biden any day.
Media speculation on the person Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will select as his vice-presidential running mate reached a fever pitch today with media outlets, led by the Drudge Report, guessing it will be Bush defense official Condoleezza Rice.
However, pro-life advocates would reject the selection because Rice has continuously defended her stance supporting legal abortions.
Rice has said that abortion should be “as rare a circumstance as possible,” but added that government should not interfere, according to a Washington Times interview.
“We should not have the federal government in a position where it is forcing its views on one side or the other,” she has said. “So, for instance, I’ve tended to agree with those who do not favor federal funding for abortion, because I believe that those who hold a strong moral view on the other side should not be forced to fund it.” I couldn't agree more :)
But she called pro-life people, “the other side,” and explained how she has a “mildly pro-choice” view that makes her essentially one who is “in effect kind of libertarian on this issue”
