Maybe Someone Should Ask Condi?

The number of groups pushing to draft Condoleezza Rice for president has reached about 20 so far, and now trying to get everybody on the same page. "We want to take it to the next stage," says ThinkCondi Chairman Richard Holt.

And that means moving from the Internet to the key primary and caucus states to set up organizations and get the secretary of state's name on the Republican primary ballots, especially in early-primary states like New Hampshire and South Carolina.

Oddly, they haven't asked Rice, but Holt doesn't think that's key yet. "We want to take this to her with results. We're sure she'll get in then and this will take off."
