OMG have you heard? If you take one part wishful thinking, two parts pointless speculation, a small dash of denial and stir in a bored AP wire reporter, it rises in its very own special little oven to create a conjectural Condi run for President in 2008?
The too-familiar article has, indeed, all these ingredients. References to Condicentric blogs (but never this one. Oh!)? Check. Vague musings by sympathetic political analysts? Check. Running mate speculation? Check. Condi portrayed as the anti-Hillary? Check. Enthusiasm waning as she's mentioned as a Vice Presidential candidate instead? Check. Mention of bobbleheads? Check. Very, very brief mention of Condi's repeated denials? Check.
Haven't we read this same article, like, totally over and over again? Oh, right! I forgot the recipe ends with lather, rinse, repeat.
