Sure, if Team McCain wants to put a key architect of the Iraq War fiasco on their ticket and then spend the next 7 months talking all about it.
Which is why we can't understand all the (informed?) chatter.
Secretary Rice might have come around to "clear, build and hold" faster than the rest of the Bushies - but good heavens!
Think of the treasure trove of '02, '03, '04, '05 & '06 Sunday talk show appearances the DNC would have to work with on Ms. Rice.
McCain/Bush's Top Lieutenant '08! - It would make one hell of a yard sign.
Furthermore, the last time we looked, "cozying" up to Grover Norquist (especially in 2008) gets you approximately zilch with Team McCain.
We're just saying.
