(CNN) - Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will endorse GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Wednesday, campaign sources told CNN. Rice also confirmed news of the endorsement.
Rice served as secretary of state from 2005-2009 under former President George W. Bush. Before that she was Bush's national security adviser.

Rice was the first African American woman to lead the State Department.
On Tuesday, Romney hit the "magic number" of Republican delegates necessary to win the GOP nomination this summer.

Condi Rice for Vice President 2012!!!!!
Way to go Condi. Not that this endorsement makes a huge difference, but it's getting worse and worse for Obama everyday. Approval ratings between 45-48% equates historically to only getting 45-48% of the popular vote. Unless the economy magically picks up then Romney may not just win, but win big in November. This has shades of Jimmy Carter written all over it.
OMG say it ain't so; is every Bush skeleton going to rise up? Ms. never figured out anything about 9/11?
Is there anyone so dense out there that thought Rice would NOT endorse the Republican-Tea Party candidate? That's why she was such a poor Secretary of State, she was soooo easy to read and had no gravitas.
Oh her name isn't "Condi" anymore, strange when she held office with Bush she wasn't respected enough to be called by her full name.
Good for him. Get the whole Bush team to endorse him and seal his fate.
And this just in, a leaf falls from a tree. In other news, a person walked on the beach and got sand in their shoes!
Whatever, Condi, it was expected.

Condo-what would you expect from someone willing to work with GW, Cheney and friends. I never thought she had much going for het.
well golly gee who else would she endorse. The repos are sticking togeathert even if it hurts. and it will. Disgusting party . Vote all repos out Forward 2012
She also served under Dubya, so even she can get lost.
do they get paid to endorse people?
Given her party history, the bigger surprise would have been if she didn't endorse Romney. No news here. This is the woman who said if we didn't invade Iraq, we would face a mushroom cloud. Condoleeza has a problem with facts and lacks good judgment. (Although, I'd vote for her long before I'd vote for Romney who kinda lacks for everything but money.)
Like Condee's endorsement would make me vote for Mittens.
I thought according to right wing talk show hosts and pundits Black people supported Obama just because he was Black and that is the main reason someone like Gen Colin Powell supported him last time even though the general is a Republican. I recall Rush Limbaugh throwing a fit over it. So what happens when Condi Rice does NOT throw her support behind Obama? Does that mean she is not REALLY Black or were the right wingers just not very bright?
The Trumpster didn't highly of her when she worked for Bush.
That is wonderful always did like her!
More like "Romney gets predictable endorsement". She's a republican with an oil tanker named after her...who do you think she'd endorse?
Bird of the same farther flock together. Of course who else does she want endorse apart from Mr flip flopper.
Does any one care this deposed lady????
She's the first of many Americans who has had enough of the amateur-in-chief and wants to see the US be great again.
January 20, 2013 can't come soon enough.
War Criminal endorses Romney.
There, fixed that for ya
Wasn't she the one who ignored repeated warnings that terrorists would try to fly planes into buildings back in the first months of Bush's first term while he vacationed in Texas? I'm pretty sure she was. Important we not forget her gross negligence.
She lied when she worked for W why should she change now.
Impressive...the worst secretary of state this country has seen in decades is endorsing the most dishonest and cynical presidential candidate this country has seen in decades – that endorsement means a lot.
