Condi Rice on ticket with Romney would damage his credibility among Catholics and Evangelicals

Drudge and other news outlets are reporting that Condoleeza Rice is the front-runner for Mitt Romney's VP pick.

I know an awful lot of Catholics and Evangelicals who are not exactly enthused with the choice of Mitt Romney, but are willing to pull that lever for him just to get Obama out of office.  We know what we will get with Obama: A radical pro-abortion, culture of death president bent on steam-rolling the U.S. Constitution, especially religious liberty.
Those who are debating whether to leave the presidential column blank are not convinced Romney is pro-life enough. Putting Rice or other "moderately pro-choice" people on the ticket with him, is not going to help. It will also be a lightening rod issue since she worked in the Bush Administration. The left will latch on to it like pitbull with a beef-bone.

Rob Portman, Bobby Jindal, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, Allen West - All people who are truly pro-life, pro-family, and conservative.

Sarah Palin also complimented Condi Rice, but expressed the same concern.

Steve Ertelt at LifeNews explains why Rice should be excluded from consideration:

Elizabeth Scalia throws out her own reasoning as to why this won't work.

Carson Holloway at Catholic Vote also offers some thoughts.

Denny Burke - an associate professor of Biblical Studies at Boyce College (Southern Baptist Theological Seminary) discusses part of an interview Rice had with Christianity Today - things that will not sit well with social conservatives who tend to vote Republican.
