Condei Rice: Beat off the ticket?

Did Condi Rice’s testimony before the 9/11 commission ruin her chances for a spot on the Republican ticket? The Nation’s John Nichols says yes.
“Fair or not, the impression that Rice created on Thursday will spell the end of her political prospects. She will never win a place on a national Republican ticket as a candidate for president or vice president. No matter how much Republican operatives may try to spin her back onto the short list, it is simply impossible to imagine that Rice, or anyone else, could survive the repeated airings of that exchange in an election year.”
