A few recent polls have suggested that if John McCain selected Condi Rice as his Veep, that ticket would beat any combination of Clinton-Obama.
Let that soak in for a second.
The American electorate rarely surprises on the downside, but this could be an exception. Rice helps a ticket?
This should remove any doubt you may still cling to that voting and merit are in any way related.
As was aptly explained on a recent episode of Maher, Rice could easily be viewed as both the worst NSA and the worst SoS in decades.
I guess two wrongs can make a right.
