Condi Isn't Dondi, er, Dandy

I'm with Diana West when she writes re Condi Rice being considered as a possible Mitt running-mate:
The bottom line is that Condoleezza Rice looks at both the United State and the world through a very murky prism of race, seeing in the segregated South she was born in not only the template for struggle everywhere, but also the actors in struggle everywhere. This shockingly parochial view sharply limits her understanding of war and peace at home and abroad. Football Commissioner, fine. Nominee for Vice President, disastrous.
Agreed. On the key issue of America's backing for Israel, Condi, who conflates the Palestinians with pre-Civil Rights-era blacks in her native Mississippi, is as out-to-lunch as the Murky Racial Prism Viewmaster who currently occupies the Oval Office.
