25 most powerful women in Republican politics.

 25 most powerful women in Republican politics.

 Condoleezza Rice Former U.S. secretary of state
As the nation’s first female African-American secretary of state, Rice, 58, played a key role in counterbalancing the stauncher neoconservatives in George W. Bush’s administration. Although she will probably never be a favorite of social conservatives — she once described herself as “mildly pro-choice” — Rice has frequently been mentioned as a strong prospect to serve on a national ticket.
Fueling that speculation was her remark at the 2012 Convention that her parents had raised their little girl to believe “she can be the president of the United States.”
Whether Rice is really prepared to leave Stanford University for the ground-and-pound of politics remains to be seen. But with her extraordinary resume, it is a safe bet that Rice will continue to inspire a generation of women leaders.

13 | Meg Whitman President and CEO, Hewlett-Packard Co. Whitman, who turns 57 this month, is that rare figure able to comfortably shift between the realms of business and politics. Currently she’s busy resurrecting the fortunes of Hewlett-Packard, trimming corporate debt by some $1.8 billion.
She took over the helm at HP after spending $144 million of her own money in a failed 2010 bid to keep California’s governorship in Republican hands. Her management acumen appears irrefutable: During her term as CEO of eBay from 1998 to 2008, company revenues grew from $4 million per year to $8 billion. But she also has kept her hand in politics, endorsing Mitt Romney during the 2012 GOP primaries.
Whitman’s greatest skill, associates say, may be her ability to inspire a strong culture of team building. Many observers believe it is only a matter of time before Whitman is asked to put together a winning team at some level in Washington.

19 | Carly Fiorina Business executive, Senate candidate Fiorina, 58, is one of the most powerful women in American business. From 1999 to 2005, she was chairwoman and CEO of Hewlett-Packard, making her the first woman to lead a Fortune 20 company. Fortune named her the Most Powerful Woman in Business for six consecutive years.
Fiorina was a leading advocate for Sen. John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign and the RNC. She delved further into politics in 2010, mounting an unsuccessful bid to unseat California Sen. Barbara Boxer.
In 2012, she served as co-chair to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign. Today, she serves as chairman of Good360, a nonprofit organization that helps coordinate charitable donations of companies’ excess merchandise.
20 | Ann Coulter Author, Columnist, Commentator One sign Ann Coulter’s broadsides are singularly effective is the visceral reaction she triggers from the left. Her clever, best-selling titles include How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must) and If Democrats Had Any Brains, They’d Be Republicans.
Coulter, 51, was an attorney before emerging in the 1990s as an outspoken antagonist of the Clinton administration. She steadfastly refuses to indulge the new American pastime of political correctness.
Coulter pens a popular syndicated column, serves as legal correspondent for Human Events, and frequently appears as a commentator on cable news shows. She was an early and outspoken supporter of Mitt Romney in the 2012 election cycle.
21 | Michelle Malkin Author, Columnist, Commentator “I was born — and remain — an ink-stained wretch.” So declares Malkin, 42, on her website. This may be a revelation to those primarily familiar with her work on television, where she is usually seen slicing and dicing the administration’s latest pettifoggery. But Malkin actually cut her teeth writing editorials for the Los Angeles Daily News and the Seattle Times.
In 1999, she began penning her nationally syndicated newspaper column for Creators Syndicate. Malkin has written four popular books published by Regnery, including Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies. She is a Fox News contributor and has been one of the Obama administration’s most strident critics.
