Raw Unfiltered News:
Thank you for visiting this unofficial website dedicated to generating excitement about the possibility of a run for the presidency by Dr. Condoleezza Rice.
At the moment, this website represents wishful thinking, but after talking to several colleagues who were equally impressed with Dr. Rice, we felt compelled to launch the first grassroots Condoleezza Rice for President website.
I truly believe that she would make a great President. Her intelligence, passion, compassion, determination and sheer brilliance; combined with her knowledge of and experience with world affairs, would make her one of the best presidents of all time. From a purely political point of view, it seems clear that she would have a broad range of appeal as a candidate as well. I would be honored and proud to have Dr. Rice at the helm of this great nation as our president.
Our theory? Although the official line coming out of the Bush campaign says that Mr. Cheney will remain on the ticket, we think you should keep an eye out for Cheney to announce that he is bowing out sometime prior to, or during the Republican convention in early September. President George W. Bush will then tap Dr. Rice as his VP in '04 and then she'll run for Prez in '08 with Jeb Bush as her VP! (Don't they look good together?)
Run, Condi Run!
NOTE: A fair amount of time and quite a few election cycles lie between now and 2008. This website will be updated from time to time, but will become more active in due course. Thanks for visiting and please check back every now and then. email webmaster: firstname.lastname@example.org
URGENT: Please help us keep Rice2008.com alive! This site is more popular than we ever dreamed and our bandwidth costs are out of control! We truly appreciate your help.

Dr. Rice's Biography
President-elect George W. Bush selected Dr. Condoleezza Rice to be his National Security Advisor on December 17, 2000. She had been a Hoover Senior Fellow and Professor of Political Science at Stanford University before taking an academic leave of absence for a year during which time she conducted research and served as primary foreign policy advisor to the Bush Presidential Campaign.
She recently completed a six-year tenure as Stanford's Provost in June 1999, during which she was the institution's chief budget and academic officer.
As Provost she was responsible for a $1.5 billion annual budget and the academic program involving 1,400 faculty members and 14,000 students. While Dr. Rice was instrumental in creating several new and innovative academic programs and initiatives, she also reduced $20 million in base budget costs of the university, balanced the budget in the first year, and reported budget surpluses during the rest of her tenure as Provost.
As a professor of political science, Dr. Rice joined the Stanford faculty in 1981 and won two of its highest teaching honors - the 1984 Walter J. Gores Award for Excellence in Teaching and the 1993 School of Humanities and Sciences Dean's Award for Distinguished Teaching. Her teaching and research interests included the politics of East-Central Europe and the former Soviet Union, the comparative study of military institutions, and international security policy. She pursued these specialties in academia and in government service.
At Stanford, she was a member of the Center for International Security and Arms Control, a Senior Fellow of the Institute for International Studies, and a Fellow (by courtesy) of the Hoover Institution. Her books include Germany Unified and Europe Transformed (1995) with Philip Zelikow, The Gorbachev Era (1986) with Alexander Dallin, and Uncertain Allegiance: The Soviet Union and the Czechoslovak Army (1984). She also has written numerous articles on Soviet and East European foreign and defense policy, and has addressed audiences in settings ranging from the U.S. Ambassador's Residence in Moscow to the Commonwealth Club to the 1992 Republican National Convention.
From 1989 through March 1991, the period of German reunification and the final days of the Soviet Union, she served in the Bush administration as Director, and then Senior Director, of Soviet and East European Affairs in the National Security Council, and as Special Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs. In 1986, while an international affairs fellow of the Council on Foreign Relations, she served as Special Assistant to the Director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In 1997, she served on the Federal Advisory Committee on Gender - Integrated Training in the Military.
She is a member of the boards of directors for the Chevron Corporation, the Charles Schwab Corporation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the University of Notre Dame, the International Advisory Council of J.P. Morgan and the San Francisco Symphony Board of Governors. She is a Founding Board Member of the Center for a New Generation, an educational support fund for schools in East Palo Alto and East Menlo Park, California and is Vice President of the Boys and Girls Club of the Peninsula. Her past board service has encompassed such organizations as Transamerica Corporation, Hewlett Packard, the Carnegie Corporation, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, The Rand Corporation, the National Council for Soviet and East European Studies, the Mid-Peninsula Urban Coalition and KQED, public broadcasting for San Francisco.

On the Richter Scale: Condi, the Spice Girl
Thank you for visiting Rice2008.com -- our grassroots effort to convince Condoleezza Rice to run for President of the United States of America in 2008. (And to inform people of the possibility and generate excitement about the prospect.)
The good news, indeed the very good news, is that tens of thousands of people are finding this site and telling their friends. This is exactly what we had hoped for. We want to get people excited about the idea of Condi Rice leading this great nation--and it's working.
We want to keep this site active and provide a place for other Condi supporters to come, share information and rally one another around this great woman.
Hopefully, you've had a chance to view the articles on Dr. Rice that we have researched and provided links to. In the very near future, we plan to include a message board, a mailing list and other useful features.
Most importantly, once the site development is complete, we will launch a nationwide publicity and media campaign to create awareness of the grassroots support Dr. Rice has. This will create a much warmer environment for Condoleezza with potential supporters throughout the Republican Party. We also plan a massive outreach campaign to reach Democrats who believe it is time for a highly qualified woman--an African American woman at that--to lead this great country.
Again, thanks for visiting and thanks for whatever help you can provide--however small--it will be greatly appreciated. (And for those who can be very generous, don't forget to include which Condi book you'd like to receive and we'll send it off immediately with all donations of $75.00 or more.)
All the best,
Thanks for helping our totally grassroots effort to inform voters about Dr. Rice's qualifications and convince Condi to run! Tell a friend!!
