Could it be a Romney/Rice ticket in November?

Late Thursday evening, Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign launched a new fundraising drive called “Meet The VP,” just as Romney himself has narrowed the field of candidates to a handful.

According to the Drudge Report, the name that is on top of Romney’s list as VP contender is Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Many are speculating that the announcement is set for the coming weeks.

A few weeks ago, Rice received two standing ovations at Romney’s Utah retreat, as everyone left with her name on their lips.

In recent days, she emailed supporters:

“2012 is perhaps a turning point for the United States. The upcoming elections loom as one of the most important in my lifetime,” she warned. “I’m very often asked to speak about our current foreign policy and the challenges that lie before us. However, we, as a country, are not going to be able to address any of those international challenges unless we first get our domestic house in order.”

That would be a good look for Romney if he can convince Rice to join his Presidential ticket. Rice would definitely be an upgrade from the last Vice Presidential candidate…
