Condi 2008?

National Review Online in their Q&A section talked to Dick Morris about his new book Condi vs. Hillary : The Next Great Presidential Race. According to Morris, Ms. Rice is the only candidate the Republicans could throw out there in 2008 that would stand a chance against Hillary. In, fact, Morris says, Condi would beat her handily. Why?

Because she would take away a third to a half of the black vote and would stop Hillary from gaining among white women. White men are a given. They will vote against Hillary by 2-1 as they voted against Gore and against Kerry. But blacks and white women are the moving pieces of this electoral puzzle.

Morris is not always right 100% of the time but he has a brilliant mind and is always interesting to listen to. Full interview here.
