-I don’t really understand why Romney would pick Condi Rice as his VP. I don’t think anyone seriously thinks African-Americans will abandon Obama in any large numbers for Romney because of Condi, and playing gender politics by picking a woman-well, we all saw how that worked out for McCain. Of course, Condi is a lot smarter/more experienced than Palin, but I just don’t see her helping Romney politically. Would anyone vote for Romney if he gets Condi that wouldn’t otherwise? If I was him, I’d be choosing between Christie and maybe Rubio or Sandoval-guys who fire up that base and may bring in distinct constituencies-independents for Christie, Florida for Rubio, and parts of the Southwest for Sandoval.
-I’ve thought about trying the paleo diet, and decided against it for 3 main reasons:
1. I don’t really need to lose that much weight.
2. So many of my favorite foods don’t make the cut-pasta, bread, juice, hummus, pita chips, and so on.
3. It’s expensive-all this protein you have to buy isn’t cheap.
