    She more than held her own. I can't wait to see what she chooses to do in 2008 or 2010, Boxer's seat? Governor of CA?

    Rice has more smarts and class in her little finger than Boxer could ever dream of. I think that was noticeably spelled out in Rice's repeated request not to impugn her character. :clap:

    My only problem; she's a woman; I'm going to say it! Snort, snort..I'm a pig!

    The most important mission of our next Secretary of State is to conduct diplomic relations with muslim nations; nations that do not respect women's rights.

    Am I wrong for suggesting that no one will respect the opinions of this woman, much less a woman who represents the most hated world leader, outside of his' own country, since Adolph Hitler?

    I remind you that this an honest and professional opinion.

    Only when the woman in question is a powerless serf.

    In the world in which these so called 'royals' live, there also exists the 'in your face' might and majesty of the United States of America, now represented by this strong and opinionated woman.

    If they take affront at the concept of a woman running US foreign policy, the demands of realpolitic require they display no outward sign or adjust their policy in accordance, or otherwise face the consequences of such an outright insult to the most powerfull nation in the world.

    This is what makes her position oh so sweet.

    Absolutely, you are wrong 100%. Watch and learn over the next four years, Condi will be respected.

    They need to learn sometime, whether through diplomacy or with their neck under a boot at gunpoint. The Saudis too, eventually.

    Amen---she chewed em up and spit em out--Kerry is damn lucky he didn't have to debate her ! He would have had to walk off stage crying. Boxer may end up IN one if she's not careful ! I did like Bidens' comment about telling the EU to " just get over it. Bush is our pres so just get over it " !

    I agreee, Biden often surprises me. Just when I can't stand him, he does something like this.

    The same could have been said of Madeline Albright. Not that she was a very assertive person, but she was also a "she."
