A woman is a good idea. Or a Marco Rubio. A Bobby Jindal. That’s the unsolicited advice one political veteran offered while discussing Mitt Romney’s potential vice-presidential pick. Most important, he said, “You’ve got to go to the future.” Oddly, that’s what the Condi rumors reflected, despite the fact that she had served in George W. Bush’s cabinet.
First five sentences are just fine.
And then there’s the sixth.
Here’s the deal. I don’t think being a Bush appointee should end someone’s career (besides the national security team people), but don’t say “You’ve got to go to the future,” and then follow it with “that’s what the Condi rumors reflected.”
Because no. Those two things are mutually exclusive.
