Officials: ‘Good possibility’ McCain will pick Rice

Palestinians ‘told we may be dealing with her in the future as vice president’

JERUSALEM – There is a “good possibility” Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice could be chosen as Sen. John McCain’s presidential running mate, Palestinian officials here say they were told by U.S. politicians in recent days.

“We were told by U.S. politicians there is a good possibility we may still be dealing with Rice in the future, but this time as vice president,” one Palestinian official told WND.

Another Palestinian official also said he recently heard from U.S. politicians Rice is likely to be McCain’s running mate.

Neither Palestinian official would say which U.S. politicians provided them with the information.

Both Palestinian officials regularly meet with Rice, including during her trip to the region earlier this month to push through Israeli-Palestinian negotiations started at last November’s U.S.-sponsored Annapolis summit.

The Palestinian officials also meet regularly with U.S. regional security coordinators and State Department officials.

Rice in February denied she is seeking the vice presidential slot.

“I have always said that the one thing that I have not seen myself doing is running for elected office,” Rice said at a news conference. “I didn’t even run for high school president. It’s sort of not in my genes.”

The State Department has not replied to WND’s request for comment.
