A conservative blogger suggests U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole for vice president.
In a post on the Race 4 2008 site, Clarence Claus writes that the Salisbury Republican could be a good foil if the Democratic nominee ends up being U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton.
Claus notes that she's served as secretary of transportation and labor, headed the American Red Cross and has a lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union of 91, an A grade from the National Rifle Association and a lifetime rating of zero from NARAL Pro-Choice America.
The Vice-Presidential candidate typically takes on the role of hatchet-man (or woman). This could be hard for Dole since she has kind of a syrupy persona, but she could attack Hillary in a way a male candidate couldn’t.
Claus says Dole would be a good pick for a Northerner like Mitt Romney or Rudy Giuliani.
In addition, Dole woudl have a former veep candidate in her corner — her husband, Bob, who ran alongside Gerald Ford in 1976.
