*SIGH* I miss Condoleezza Rice! Such maturity, such authority and boy what an intellect! This puerile college student ties to play gotcha with Condi and ends up getting schooled instead! "Do your homework first", she tells him! How perfect is that? It is like a double put down, telling him he isn't nearly as bright as he thinks and also conveys that she's the teacher and he's the student! Simply, beautiful! Judging from the sideways portion at the end of the video, methinks they were trying to make an ambush video of their confrontation with Condi. That certainly backfired!
One of the things I most like about Condi, is that she is an adult. She would never have gotten caught with egg on her face and a crap eating grin, all because she tried to be theatrical by giving a misspelled gag gift to a foreign counterpart! Hillary, take note of your superior!
Obama could never match Condi's level of gravitas, with or without the damn teleprompter. Sadly, black conservatives, no matter how superior they are to their black liberal counterparts, are never given the respect they deserve. Condi's educational background and intellect compared to Obama's is like comparing the Manhattan Yellow Pages to a pamphlet! Yet, Obama is touted as the intellectual giant of our time. So sad!
I remember early in the '08 campaign season when little whispers were swirling around the web, that Condi Rice might run for president! I cannot tell you how anxious I was at the prospect. I would have crawled over broken glass to get this woman elected. I would have beamed with pride that the first black to occupy the White House was there because they had the chops, not because they sailed in with a paper thin resume, a smoke and mirrors media blitz or a heavy dose of white liberal guilt!
If only we had adults like Condi in charge now. As we face a weakening economy, foreign affairs nightmares and new pandemics, it would be so comforting to know that these issues were be handled by an adult, rather than someone looking to capitalize on each "crisis".
I miss you Dr. Condoleezza Rice, good luck in your future endeavors and God bless.
