Rice is clearly very very smart. She's also completely useless in any kind of real world scenario. She needs to be in charge of a think tank or advisory group. Her whole speech was her professor side coming out. It was so strange compared to the other speakers. And it wandered from topic to topic with out any cohesion.

#4 Russia

Putin is a dangerous, power hungry prick and the sooner his fingers are pried loose from that country the better for everyone, espescially the Russian people. I think that he is truly on his downward last term, unfortunately he'll go the distance but there's no way that he'll stay in power (or even pulling strings) past this term. Too many of the Russian people are tired of him and his cronyism, the demonstrations from the last election would seem like a school debate compared to what would happen if he tried to run again.

That said, Georgia got exactly what it deserved in 2008. They tried to force a russian leaning, marginally independent block back into its fold instead of Russia's, against the will of those citizens. Its simply the mirror image of Kosovo, Russia responded an beat the shiat out of them. NATO and the West was right to stay out of this, no matter how much McCain may have been drolling over the possibility.

Millennium: Churchy LaFemme: Biggest difference between Condi and Obama?

OBAMA DIDN'T IGNORE OSAMA.

Osama was outside the scope of Condi's responsibilities: she was Secretary of State, not of Defense of or Homeland Security. If you're going to make baseless accusations, at least get your players straight.


You conveniently left out a key position Ms. Rice held in the Bush Administration.

Osama bin Laden falls squarely within the scope of Condi's responsibilities as National Security Advisor.

When I was listening to Condi speak yesterday at the convention she spoke eloquently about the importance of education and fact that the US is a place where someone can come from humble beginnings and do great things. I swear it sounded like she was endorsing Obama and the Democratic party. Then she suddenly pivoted in a way that made no sense and endorsed Romney - it was weird.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Diogenes: Beyond not walking in lockstep, I thought she sounded like a better candidate than Romney himself. More like someone who I could trust and respect even when we don't see eye-to-eye. Someone who was inclusive. Someone who had a vision. Someone who truly made herself into the woman she is today.

She is very impressive. I would vote for her over almost all the politicians in Washington. Really and truly she would be a third parties dream. I couldn't see voting for Romney or Obama over her. She specks a handful of languages and is a concert pianist, I know that is not really skill need for leadership but it specks to her intelligence and dedication. I think that is her problem, she's to damn smart to run for President. You'd have to be a power hungry egotist to go through the ringer for that job.


I didn't say I want her to be Prez. But it was a good speech and I think she'd be a superior candidate to Romney.

She's a smart, pragmatic non-zealot.

AKA, a RINO. Like Reagan.

SecretAgentWoman: That woman must have to go home each night and shower in bleach just to be able to stand the stench she mires in each day.


I suspect you could say that about many people outside of politics too. Processing medical insurance claims and the mortgage industry spring to mind.

I suspect most people in politics see it as a business.

REALLY?!? You mean that there is someone in the Republican party that doesn't walk lock step with the Presidential Candidate?!

Are all the Democratics brainless zombies that do and believe exactly the same as Obama?

Wait, never mind no need to answer that.
