    As Secretary of State, she'll have no impact on the issue either way.

    Question that might be asked is as follows, or could be.

    Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter, in this case "Rockette"? Frankly, I doot know, though time will likely tell.

    Would she be the one to send a representative to the U.N. conference on small arms?

    These are really intersesting times we live in

    We have a pro-gun, black, republican, woman, who has some political clout and I can see actually having somewhat of a chance at the Whitehouse in a forseeable future. Not necessarily in '08, unless she participates in something big that gets her even more notoriety. I can see her running eventually with moderate to huge success. I have alot of respect for this woman and I think with her, stereotypes and certain flawed views will be exposed and wither in the light of day. I like her can you tell? :D

    It's been reported that she has a very close relationship with Bush - so it's possible her views on this subject could influence him.

    Rick is right.

    She is, from what I have heard, Bush's closest advisor.

    Honestly, I have a feeling that Cheney is going to resign in a couple years, if things are going well for Bush's 2nd term, and Condi will replace him, so that she will be in a good position for '08.

    Just my prediction, if things go well in the next two years.

    I've sent this link to several friends to check out. Rice is about to turn 50 years old and she has a better resume that me and everybody I know put together! How did one woman squeeze so much education and work history into such a short life?! I guess it is true that she is a "workaholic."

    Check it out but be prepared to feel inadequate!

    Re: Dr. Rice -

    She has a "handy for us" attitude when the UN's global gun-grab is presented within the next two years.

    A point: I'm starting a small campaign to see her referred to as Dr. Rice. How many references to "Hank" Kissinger have you ever read in the liberal press or heard on the TV News?

    For a person who has earned a PhD and is going to be Secretary of State, using a cute nickname seems something of a put-down.

    JMHO,

    Thank you GreyBear,
    Dr. Rice it should be. I believe she is due that courtesy.

    From what I have seen, we should go out of our way to support the lady.
    I think she is good for the country. He childhood and family experiences seem to have left her with a proper orientation and her influence on President Bush should be very positive in that regard.

    Wow, interesting theory. That would leave her very well positioned to run in 2008.

    Dr. Rice's Qualifications

    With all the acedemic qualifications she has, together with her political savvy, she's also a baseball fan. What more could America ask?

    [​IMG]

    Dr. Condoleezza Rice became the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, commonly referred to as the National Security Advisor, on January 22, 2001.

    In June 1999, she completed a six year tenure as Stanford University 's Provost, during which she was the institution's chief budget and academic officer. As Provost she was responsible for a $1.5 billion annual budget and the academic program involving 1,400 faculty members and 14,000 students.

    As professor of political science, Dr. Rice has been on the Stanford faculty since 1981 and has won two of the highest teaching honors -- the 1984 Walter J. Gores Award for Excellence in Teaching and the 1993 School of Humanities and Sciences Dean's Award for Distinguished Teaching.

    At Stanford, she has been a member of the Center for International Security and Arms Control, a Senior Fellow of the Institute for International Studies, and a Fellow (by courtesy) of the Hoover Institution. Her books include Germany Unified and Europe Transformed (1995) with Philip Zelikow, The Gorbachev Era (1986) with Alexander Dallin, and Uncertain Allegiance: The Soviet Union and the Czechoslovak Army (1984). She also has written numerous articles on Soviet and East European foreign and defense policy, and has addressed audiences in settings ranging from the U.S. Ambassador's Residence in Moscow to the Commonwealth Club to the 1992 and 2000 Republican National Conventions.

    From 1989 through March 1991, the period of German reunification and the final days of the Soviet Union, she served in the Bush Administration as Director, and then Senior Director, of Soviet and East European Affairs in the National Security Council, and a Special Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs. In 1986, while an international affairs fellow of the Council on Foreign Relations, she served as Special Assistant to the Director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In 1997, she served on the Federal Advisory Committee on Gender -- Integrated Training in the Military.

    She was a member of the boards of directors for the Chevron Corporation, the Charles Schwab Corporation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the University of Notre Dame, the International Advisory Council of J.P. Morgan and the San Francisco Symphony Board of Governors. She was a Founding Board member of the Center for a New Generation, an educational support fund for schools in East Palo Alto and East Menlo Park, California and was Vice President of the Boys and Girls Club of the Peninsula . In addition, her past board service has encompassed such organizations as Transamerica Corporation, Hewlett Packard, the Carnegie Corporation, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, The Rand Corporation, the National Council for Soviet and East European Studies, the Mid-Peninsula Urban Coalition and KQED, public broadcasting for San Francisco.

    Born November 14, 1954 in Birmingham, Alabama, she earned her bachelor's degree in political science, cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, from the University of Denver in 1974; her master's from the University of Notre Dame in 1975; and her Ph.D. from the Graduate School of International Studies at the University of Denver in 1981.

    A Rumsfeld/Rice ticket would be a dream come true. Islamists would just give up and kill themselves on the spot. Poor lefties would flee to Greenwich Village and rich ones would bee-line it to their therapists offices.

    I can just see the board members of the NAACP going into apoplectic shock trying to wrap their brains around that one until their heads explode like that guy in Scanners.

    Imagine the news conferences. Happy happy, joy joy! :)

    Rumi/Rice.....Rice/Rumi.....it's enough to make me leave the Constitution Party and go Republican again.

    After hearing the Bushs loose their minds in Birmingham today I'm bout to agree with the Dems. We do need regime change, just not in the direction the Dems are hoping for.

    Dr Rice would get my vote. She may be the only one who could beat Hillary. The liberal media has already started in on her. She is a big threat to the Democratic Party base. Imagine, making wise personal decisions, getting and education and improving your lot in life without relying on the government - and all that as a female minority! That is definitely a threat to the Dems.
