Condi 2008

RR told me about the results of the CPAC Republican straw poll last night. They are as follows (thanks to Patrick Ruffini for posting them as well):

19% Giuliani
18% Rice
11% Allen, Frist, McCain
4% Owens, Romney, Santorum
5% Gingrich
2% Pataki
1% Hagel, Huckabee, Pawlenty, Santorum
0% Barbour

I was moderately surprised to see Condi come in second just after Giuliani. While she brings certain attributes to the table that other candidates can't, she also has never run for elected office, which is a huge red flag. Still, articles like this in the Washington Post discussing how sexy and powerful she looked when she addressed the troops in Germany can't be all bad (I don't want to think about Giuliani trying to pull this off).

UPDATE: Link to the WaPo article added.
