And most especially the talk of a Condi Rice emerging as a possible running mate with Mitt Romney.
That juicy trial balloon was the subject matter on KCBS this morning with Willie Brown and political insider, Phil Matier.
Brown said he thought Rice would be a great pick. "She's an ex-Secretary of State, Stanford professor and she's an expert on foreign relations, she's got it all."
But, as anchor, Stan Bunger pointed out, would she take it? Said Brown, "Hey, think about it--if someone asked you if you wanted to be the vice-president, you'd say yes--'it's a great gig."
Really, Willie? After all, Rice, as pointed out by both Bunger and Matier, has repeatedly said she's very much not interested in the "gig." "If they ask her, they do it on the assumption that she'll accept it."
I liked Bungers' last question: "Would this be the 'anti-Sarah Palin pick?" "Oh no, they're better than that." Brown sounded as if he knew something that the rest of us don't know.
It was a good five minutes of morning radio--chock full of interesting and pointed nuggets without the slightest bit of excess traffic reports or a Kars4Kids jingle. Say this for Willie Brown--he's good political theatre and his bit on KCBS was a nice departure from the usual morning radio minutiae.
