John McCain, Condoleezza Rice To Speak At GOP Convention
Kinda like the Oscars for politics, people have definite opinions about who and who shouldn't be speaking and participating. During a time of such change, however, it's almost anyone's game; and lack of consensus regarding leaders (no matter whether in politics or other arenas) encourages questions and possible substitutions. In this leaderful era, everyone seems to have a role to play. But what we really wanna know is, what celebs will be on the convention floor as there are sure to be sightings and interaction with many of them on the upcoming Dem side. (remember '08 competition-like style for celeb attention between the two parties? Oy vey)
Former GOP presidential contender John McCain and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice are now confirmed to be among the headline speakers at the Republican Party Convention in August. They will speak just ahead of Mitt Romney's formal acceptance of his party's presidential nomination. The keynote speaker, who is rumored to be New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, has not yet been formally announced. When someone is announced as keynote speaker that could indicate that Romney has decided against that person as a running mate. Let's see what the comments are to the news of this latest development.
What Others Are Saying...
Rick Santorum's people are already making it public that they're not pleased. They want a prominent speaking role for the womb chasing nutjob. … I can't wait for this hillbilly, geezer showdown. … They'll be lots of smelly old people passing out from the heat. …
When are they going to put McCain out to pasture? No matter if he was a war hero forty years ago … He hardly ever is on the right side of an issue. He ran such a tepid campaign in '08 that he has to bear some responsibility for the red-diapered Marxist that we have in the White House today. Better … keep him away from the convention altogether.
… Ron Paul, the last man standing doesn't get a slot with a huge base of supporters? … He really was the most honest guy in the Republican race. Guess that is why he was doomed.
