The Resurrection of Condoleeza Rice

Thursday, August 30, 2012

This year's Republican National Convention has been about the young new stars of the party and an obvious distancing from the Bush Era. The party's strategy did not, however, apply to former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, who spoke last night in Tampa. Although Rice has left politics to teach at Stanford, she remains the most popular figure from the Bush Administration.

In a Republican Party in which President Bush is relegated to speaking through a video screen, what’s the future role of Condoleeza Rice? John Reid is a partner and Managing Director of International Business at Qorvis Communications in Washington.

I blame The Takeaway for softening my heart towards Condoleeza Rice.

I am always impressed how when The Takeaway has a positive segment on a Republican... none of the usual suspects have anything to say. I don't get it.
