    From what I've read in the media, I think she's handling the Danish cartoon flap pretty well. Pretty much said what needed to be said.

    Not that it will do much good.

    Don't guess this fit guns or rights, so it'll probably get locked, but just had to say it. Maybe it will stay open for historical curiosity...

    She sounded okay and reasonable. I think she handled it well.

    But...

    I'm going to say IBTL!

    True, her and Nicholas Sarkozy are seemingly the only politicians in the West who arent being all "Freedom of speech is vital, but its essential we learn to tolerate... etc etc", while ignoring the obvious hijacking of the protests by countries/groups with other motives.

    In the meantime, for the "nuke em all" crowd, an Egyptian blogger has been able to find that an Egyptian paper published the images back in October (during Ramadan) without the slightest murmur of protest. He also pretty much hits the nail on the head by pointing out the idiocy of all this:

    I think Rice makes a far better SOS than a national security advisor. Perhaps she might even make a better president? From a pure 2A perspective, I think she might be the best of our potential choices in '08, but she will have to overcome a lot of baggage if the war in Iraq doesn't improve in the next couple of years.

    She black, female, and has no track record. She is not a politician, she is a bureaucrat. She does her job as SOS satisfactorily, but there is no way the Republican machine will even seriously consider her.

    The Republicans will talk about it on the news channels, because they think at least considering her will make them look good to black voters. But in the end, she has no chance.

    This is just to ugly reality of the situation, like it or not.

    This is all true, Lone Gunman, but I still think she'd kick Hilary's behind in a national election. But you're right--a Clinton-Rice election would probably be what it took to break the back of the two-party system.

    I would vote for her. She's 10x better than anything the "Republican Machine" can regurgitate at the moment.

    I agree, despite the fact that she has no chance.

    I'll mark that as a yes vote for her in 2008 in the national election~! Bravo!

    Connie...Connnie...She's our Man... if she can't do it nobody can!

    In 2008 she'll beat Hilderbeast and win the GOP faithful!

    Connie...Connnie...She's our Man... if she can't do it nobody can!

    its a sad day when not being a politician is seen as a hindrance.

    I am fed up enough with both parties to be willing to vote for a
    viable non-politician.

    I like to think that public service is something that business men,
    lawyers, generals, etc. ought to do for a few years between a
    successful career at actually doing something and retirement.
    Professional politicians and public service .... argh!

    As predicted by the poster, OT.
